    What do you y'all think about making sausage at the gathering as a group?

    Keith's smoke house?

    someone have a stuffer? Grinder?

    i'll provide some butts for it...

    thoughts?

    That would be fun Doug!
    I have a 5# stuffer and a 12# grinder I could bring, they aren't that big, I don't know how much you were thinking of making.

    i'm not a sausage expert (nor have i ever even made any) so maybe the sausage experts have a better idea. i wouldn't think we'd make alot. maybe just a few points make enough links for everyone to have some for a meal....

    well... hate to be the one to mess things up... I had to put the smoke house on hold... it seems we had an offer on our house we couldn't refuse... closing will be July 10th (had to cancel my 2 week vaca to TN) ... we are trying to buy the lot next door and going to build a new house... so all my time is focused on that.. sorry bout that... but if anybody has an electric or propane smoker we could probably use that... I also have a 1/2 hp Cabelas grinder if ya want me to bring that...

    hey can't pass up a offer on a house! Well just have to find another way. My new trailer smoker might be good for it...we can start with a little amount of charcoal in the wood box and slowly increase heat with more wood/coal and oxygen. unless anyone else has a better idea.

    So I added another day to my reservation so I will be coming in on Thursday instead of Friday!!!

    How did everyone in S. Fl. fair today? Are you ready to dry out?

    We got hammered a couple of times but nothing too bad!
