    Hello,

    Joined the site not long ago. I'm a member of several bbq forums but this one seems to be by far this biggest!! I enjoy smoking and grilling and now I'm wanting to get in touch with my Polish roots and try my hand at sausage making.

    I live in Longview, Texas. Originally from Houston. Im 31 years old, married, have a lil 16 month old boy and another one due in July. I've been grilling since I was a teenager. I've been smoking about 4 or 5 years now. I just bought a new Weber Performer and I also own a 22.5" Weber kettle, a smokey joe and an 18" WSM.

    I look forward to many hours of reading til my eyes bleed!! [​IMG]
     
  2. My wife is Polish. Her mother taught us how to make sausage. You can not beat homemade Polish sausage. It is the bomb on the grill or smoked. We have a hand crank grinder/stuffer that belonged to her grandmother. We have a friend that is also of Polish decent, and we get together from time to time and have a sausage stuffing beer fest. The hardest thing is to find some one to grind pork for you. Most retail meat counters will not grind pork for you. I have had the most success finding local butchers that process deer meat to grind my pork.

  6. I lived in Longview for a short time in 1975. I was attending LeTourneau College. There was an awesome BBQ shack back then called "Bodacious BBQ" Hope it is still there

    How to post Qview to Forum:

    When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

    Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

    Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
