    So, my buddy came over and finished plumbing in my HWT for my bathroom shop (he also did all the plumbing in bathroom) 

    SO time to repay,,, Told him he has to provide the meat and I will provide everything else. 

    I thought it a good deal and so did he. 

    First batch was 25lbs of Tex Mex from PS Seasonings with Lava Jack Cheese Hi Temp 

    We had about 20lbs of snack sticks and 5lbs or so of summer sausage,

    First batch I did not get any shots before smoking here they are out of the smoker 

    There is a lot of sticks - 

    After blooming for a few hours into a brown paper bag for a overnight rest in the fridge. 

    Too late to get any pics of the summer sausage 

    Batch #2

    25lbs of Habanero Snack stick seasoning with Lava Jack Cheese 

    Seasoning came from PS Seasonings and Lava Jack came from Butcher Packer

    Before they go to the smoker I put them in room temp for about 2hrs then into 130*Smoker 

    with dampers full open and No smoke for about another 2hrs 

    Then I add smoke and bump temp up 10* each hr till smoke gets to 170 and meat gets to 152*IT 

    the New expanding tube smoker worked great!! So good I bought another one LOL [​IMG]

    This should supply him for a while 

    Second batch done!! Waiting on the summer sausage to get to IT. 

    This took 2 days and about 9 hrs each day 

    I will try to get a money shot tonight after I get home 

    Thanks for looking 

    A full smoker is a happy smoker
