    BOY is this warm, great with a Ice cold one. Well now since I got my freezer filled with that beef I thought I better use some of it.

    Went to the smoke cabinet to see what I could find and BINGO!!!!

    PS Seasoning Habanero Snack stick seasoning enough for 12 1/2lbs 

    went to the designated smoke fridge and BINGO Lava Jack cheese.

    Now were smoking!!!


    Pack included the right amount of Cure 


    Lava Jack Cheese I got from Butcher Packer I believe 


    It originally came in a 5lb bag so I put 1 - 11/4lbs and re vac packed it. 


    This was 10lbs of 80/20 ground beef and had to go to store and buy 2 1/2lbs of ground pork I hate it when they put it in 12oz packages [​IMG]

      

    2 cups NFDM 


    Let the stuffing begin!!!! these are 2.4X12" long fiborus casings they hold about a pound each 


    Well summer is here and can't find any of my kids now to help but I am sure they will be around for snack time. So I convinced Mrs DS to come out and help,,, And wouldn't you know if she liked doing it??????


    Had a little stubby one to finish it off


    Not much left in the stuffer!!


    And Done stuffing will go in fridge till tomorrow and smoked then. 


    OK FAST FORWARD TO SUNDAY TO THE SMOKER THEY GO!!!!


    Smoker temp 120 for 2hrs no smoke

    after 2hrs add smoke and bump smoker temp to 130*

    Next hr bump up smoker 10* till smoker temp gets to 170

    Smoke till IT gets to 152*

    Then I cold bath my S/S 


    This took about 10hrs to get to 152 but well worth it. No fat out. 

    Into the Designated smoker fridge for an overnight stay 


    and the money shots

    - These came out great!! 

    BINGO!!!! 

    and they are warm!!!!

    That was a lot of work so I had to have a beverage!! or two or three 


    Thanks for looking 

     A full smoker is a happy smoker

    That looks real good DS!!!!!  Great job by yourself and your wife!!!!  I think they make 12 oz. packs so you buy more.  They do sell 1 pound chubs here.  I like that cheese and heat combo. [​IMG]Reinhard.

    BINGO......all looks legit except that Keystone <grin>.......a good hab cheese SS deserves better, no? So, funny, but that hab SS is on my short list to do. Have a recipe I'm sitting on to try out and just need to pull the trigger on it. The money shots look terrific and nice to see you like a slice size about the same as me!!! Great work....and kudos to Mrs. DS for helpin'.....Willie

    Yes we have a warm front stuck over us for most of this week so it's warm and humid, with little pop-up showers happening enough to generate some flood warnings. Pack an umbrella if you're coming here.
