Hey Ross,

The marina is in Southern Maryland on Smith Creek - Point Lookout Marina. We travel there from Harrisburg figuring that the extra time on the road is well worth being able to get on the boat and sail to our hearts' content.

My mom is seven miles away across the Potomac so her dock is often the first port of call. I can cook there, too!

"Project B" - Starting From Scratch

Post by two_MN_kids » Thu Aug 16, 2012 15:35

Great idea, Chuckwagon. I`m in on this one. Before I joined the forum, I think I read every page, looking for answers. I believe this project will be very beneficial, even for those just "viewing".

In the past five weeks, I made over 50 lbs. of various sausages. Different problems existed in each batch. :oops: And although I can`t confess to being a beginner, I will admit I have much to learn. An old dog can learn new tricks! :smile:

Great idea, CW!
I'm not sure I'll be able to participate, but I look forward to reading about the 'discoveries' and experiences others are kind enough to share!

Always plenty more I need to learn!

On note keeping

Post by ssorllih » Thu Aug 16, 2012 19:52

When I started this endeavour I followed the advise of CW and others and started keeping notes on sausage formulations and other meat preparations. I also make notes concerning my likes and dislikes with the results. This is also useful for keeping account of costs. For example today I bought about twenty pounds of pork butts from the bargain bin at $1.03 per pound.

CW, I'll participate although I'm no beginner. One can never get enough education when it comes to sausage making.

And I thought I had a bargain when I found it at $1.29/lb. I stocked the new freezer just to have it on hand for "Project b". I am concerned that with this drought, many producers will send to market early; later the price may become very expensive.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it probably needs more time on the grill! :D

I would also like to participate but not sure whether I can meet the timelines. I actually have been planning to make kabanosy, Italian fresh and a cold smoked fresh Hungarian in the next two weeks, so this project fits right in. I have successfully made Italian four times already but have never made kabanosy. However, if the weather stays decent, we are planning a camping trip and I probably would not be able to do anything until the end of the month

Hi Red,
You should be just fine because it will take some time to get started. We have to read & study a bit while we order and wait for supplies to arrive anyway. Also, we should wait just a bit longer for any more beginners to sign up. How about if we put your name on the list so you won't be locked out of the forum, then if you have problems down the line, we'll excuse ya? Sound ok? :mrgreen:
