re: What are must have’s for processing your own meat? - gumbo2176 on 1/24/21 at 1:35 am
I went through 3 large pork butts that I trimmed and cut up in chunks for grinding yesterday. I used a hand cranked #10 LEM grinder and got 25 lbs. of pork ground up in about 1/2 hours time. Then after separating it in the size batches I wanted, I seasoned the meat to make 5 lbs. of hot, 10 lbs...

re: Upright freezer - gumbo2176 on 1/23/21 at 8:16 pm
I've got a large Whirlpool upright frost free freezer that I have in my man cave for the past 10 years and I've had absolutely no issues with it. I'd not hesitate to buy another one if this one goes out. But I'd hate to see that happen since it is chock full of meat, vegetables from my garden, s...

Yeah, I've seen a few episodes, but it gets old pretty fast. How many times can you listen to them say, "OH, dat's a big one" "Watch out for the head or he'll bite you" Then watch as the bag the snake up and the screen has a written description of the snake. 9 ft. long--------97 l...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Siding ID - gumbo2176 on 1/22/21 at 11:01 am
[quote]Basically you are telling me I need to put something over it. What would you suggest?

re: Quail recipe - gumbo2176 on 1/22/21 at 8:43 am

[quote]is the lean to fat ratio on a butt close enough that it’s not necessary to add any extra fat? [/quote] I've never added any fat to the sausage made from pork butts.

[quote]Very large handle which helps with leverage. 5+ stars[/quote] Leverage is a key to opening oysters easily. That is why I like the DR with the white grip with some texture to it. You can get a good grip on the handle and it is a bit oval shaped so you can get more torque than a smoo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I lost an ex brother-in-law to ALS and he was a young man when it hit him and a former co-worker that I considered a friend who got it when he was in his mid 50's. It is scary how fast they can go downhill once diagnosed. Horrible disease for sure. RIP to the young lady....
