Hi. Here's my intro. I'm a wi.native. My dad butchered all our own meat on the farm cured smoked canned and making sausage. My folks came from Germany and brought plenty of fabulous recipes with them. Though my folks have passed I have continued the family tradition of processing all my own meat right off the farm at home. I decided to join the site and share some recipes and experience with a number of smoker's I've built over the years. Looking forward to meeting a lot of new friends and sharing what I hope will be recipes you'll use over and over. I do all of my own home canning and rarely spend time or money at the grocery store. With all that said hello all!
