Another update... My test chub is now down to 827 grams. That's about a 38% loss from the green weight. It's definitely firming up a lot more for sure. This leads me to a question... When I weighed my test chub it was right after stuffing it and before fermentation. Is this when most of you weigh th...

I'll have to give that one a shot for sure. I'm still not sure which one I'll do next but you guys will be the second to know. I'll be the first. :mrgreen:

What ever it is there definitely will be pictures.
So many things to do and so little time. :grin:

Thanks CW I agree that I probably should have started with slightly higher RH. The centre is coming along but still a little too mushy for my liking. I do think I'm going to let it go a little longer and see if I can get the centre to firm up a bit more. I'm not sure what I will try next. Any sugges...

Another update... My test chub is at 872 grams so it is approaching my target of 865 grams. As I said before I'm new to dry curing but simply judging by feel it feels a little soft in the middle. Two days ago I couldn't wait so I cut two or three inches off the end of one chubs. I should have taken ...

Looks spot on Mike, good work. Hey I plan on incubating some salami in my smoker, as my curing chamber has product in it. What did you use for creating humidity in your smoker? And what temp did you ferment your salami at? I have the mondostart 2m too, thinking 24c should be fine. Thanks Toby Hi To...

It looks like it works pretty slick. Do you just start it on the electric frying pan to get it going then it stays lit on it's own with the air flow from the pump?

JerBear I wiped up a batch of this today and it turned out extremely good. I threw a package of my smoked kielbasa on the gaser for a bit and cut it into 1 inch chunks. Gave it a squirt of the mustard and it made for some great snacks. I did double the honey in it. I've tried a couple of different m...

Thanks guys!

Another update...

I just weighed my test chub again and it's 912 grams. So that's a 23 gram loss over the last 2 days or 11.5 grams a day.

Impatiently waiting... :lol:
