Re: So who's in with me?

I grew up in Alberta and we had a lot of beavers. We would harvest and eat them. Very good sweet meat. Beaver population is as high or if not higher than when the fur trade started in north America with the Hudson's Bay company.

Congratulations! I took that course in 2014. You will enjoy and learn lots from the instructor Desmond. You will get spoiled with all the high end equipment! A side bonus is that the bakery course is taught across the hall and they were always bringing over fresh baked samples.

Hi Chris
In your instructions you say to smoke for 90 mins at 135-140f, then raise the temp to 160f and finish at 180f for 20-30 mins.

How long do you keep the smoker at 160f?

Thanks
Ken

Can you please post some of your canned meat recipes. I have a lot of moose meat and I would like to can some. Could you post a recipe that you think would be good for making canned game meat.

Thanks

Thanks for the warm welcome Chris! Maybe I can get you to introduce me to some of the shellfish farmers, if you know any, up that way. I would be keenly interested in a get together.

Cheers

new to Vancouver Island

Sorry if this is not the appropriate forum for this posting. I am relocating from Alberta to Vancouver Island and am wondering if there are any forum members on the island that I might occasionally meet with to improve my charcuterie skills etc. I am relocating to the Cowichan Valley.

Thanks
Ken
