So, My grinder and stuffer came in... SWMBO says dont touch till Christmas... Dang it! My VacMaster 260 came, many thanks to LisaB, she helped me figure things out. Today my buddy picked up a new poly meat tub, and lid, a pile of premixed seasonings, some hog casings, and some collagen casings. He got fresh, because he thought the smoked casings had a flavor on them, assuming I would be smoking them any way. Will the fresh handle the smoking process? Or am I better off re-purposing them to a non smoked recipe? Pics will follow Christmas day I hope!
