Hello from Texas. New to the forum but have stalked it for years. The knowledge on this forum is second to none. I've recently retired after 30 years in the fire service and decided to rejuvenate my love for smoking and sausage making. I currently have an offset smoker and an MES 40. Sausage making equipment consists of a 1.2hp #22 grinder and a Dakotah water stuffer.
