re: What are must have’s for processing your own meat? - gumbo2176
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
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...

re: Has anyone been watching Swamp People: Serpent Invasion? - gumbo2176
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...

[quote]Might look at the big mixers that hook to my grinder as well to mix it easy.[/quote] I mix all my seasoning in my sausage by hand and it really isn't all that hard to do. You just have to make sure you're very thorough when doing it, but that only takes a few minutes of my time to mix an...

re: Siding ID - gumbo2176
[quote]Basically you are telling me I need to put something over it. What would you suggest? [/quote] No. The proper way to deal with that is to remove the stuff and go back with newer, more durable siding. That masonite product is a PITA if the paint starts peeling and needs to be prepped t...

re: Quail recipe - gumbo2176
Had a friend that would go out and shoot dozens of them and bring them to me already cleaned and I'd make a nice pot of quail sauce piquant and send a good bit of it back to him and that was a hit. Like already mentioned, bacon wrapped and grilled....

Is the material solid like Hardy Plank? I doubt it's real wood due to the heavy textured look of it. I know I've seen vinyl siding and Hardy Plank with that heavy a wood grain texture to it....

[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. The only thing I'm real religious about is removing as much of the sinew as possible since it tends to clog the openings of...

[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...

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....
