My next try at chips was to see if I could find hickory, oak ,apple logs and try to make my own chips.Well I soon found out that making my own wood chips took quite a bit of ma...

Hi Ross, There was only about 1.5 lbs. of regular brined turkey left and none of CW's recipe. We had about 18 people. everyone brings a dish to pass so we have lots of veggies and deserts. All the leftovers are sent home with the kids. I may have to build a bigger smoke house to accommodate more tur...

Next a good food quality sausage tub for mixing.It will be easier to clean. Mixing can be done by hand,it's nice to have latex glove...

That old grinder weighed about 80 lbs (was 1...
