RafterW It is hard to explain, but the property the Grand was done on, was Dayton Airport property, which is annexed land north of the city of Dayton in a town called Vandalia. Well the city in its infinite wisdom started passing anti gun laws, so they moved west to Sparta, Ill in 2005. They official reason given was for expansion of the airport. Nothing like government bureaucracy to ruin a good thing. It was in Dayton from 1924 to 2005.
johnsbrewhouse Wishing the very best. That is just about the way I feel too, but Margaret says no more house building & the house itself is not too bad, good bones, pretty good layout for something I did not design (just kidding). I would not mind being a little further out or at least more secluded. I learned a long, long, long time ago to stay away from those HOAs. I will not live in one period, now. First experience with one was about 40 years ago & I was excited about it & wanted to do good things & help. That is not what everyone one else involved in them wants & most of it borders on ridiculousness, in my humble opinion. The we did one that had one, but they assured us, it exists, but no one pays & everybody just works together. It was very private & secluded. Then after several years of being there & volunteering time & tractor work, etc. to help keep things up & do the right thing, someone got the wise idea & found he could legally do so, to revamp it & collect back dues from folks from years of not paying. You can just imagine. Well, I learned my lesson twice, that’s it, No More! Please pardon my rant, but I am passionate about it.
processhead If you use willies to make restructured there are no changes that are needed. Restructured is similar enough to the cured sausage that a 1-1 ratio will be fine. Test batch might not be the worst idea though. Now, if you are using a jerky seasoning, like Walton's Bold Jerky Seasoning then you might use 5-10% more seasoning as we are going to loose less product by % of weight.
I never really understood why the different seasoning amounts used between whole muscle and ground jerky styles.
I would appreciate an explanation from someone who understands the reason behind this?
I tried cracking the lid and the lowest I could get it was 150. So I put them in about an hour at 150. Then I let it cook at 165 for another hour. Then I added a 1/2 gal pan of water with a towel hanging out. Cooked like that until done. Went through about a full gallon of water. They turned out really nice
Chef we have not had good leadership for many years now. Everyone does what is good for them, not the good of the country. Too much money involved, and until that is out of politics, we wont have good leaders. I am with you on the praying.
This is all I will say in our wonderful meat community about this topic. I come here to get away from this s××t.
Jonathon on a more serious note, is that Candied Bacon seasoning for bacon or a bacon flavored seasoning? I’m looking forward to the non-vacation months here so I can stop with the overtime and get back to processing meat and being more a part of the Orangersation. :orangehat: Oh wait that was supposed to be conversation…
It just should not have meat anywhere on the package
Then it won’t make the people who choose not to eat meat feel like they are eating meat. I get that there are some people who have physical issues eating meat. It’s the ones who are virtue signaling who think they are doing it for the greater good who I don’t understand why they want everything they eat want it to mimic meat as much as possible.
Since you didn’t have to be present the first time, and no one claimed the knives, it’s too bad they decided only people present in the livestream were eligible for the re-draw. I would have liked to made the livestream though just to be in on other miscellaneous drawings they do on the fly (hats, shirts, aprons, shakers, etc. I’d even like to win some of the jerky… it always sounds good. Maybe next time.
HerbcoFood HAHAHA! I will have to take your word on it. The last time I had a taste of that stuff was when my oldest boy was playing t-ball… and he just graduated in biochem pre-med and is now in medical school.
I use the supreme pizza (big hit getting kids into venison ), blue ribbon, hatch green Chile and the fanciest flavor is longanisa ,it is kinda like a teriyaki but with more flavor (garlic, pineapple, paprika)
High temp cheese available: mozzarella, pepper Jack, cheddar and ghost
Good podcast Jonathon! I agree with you. The UN can pound sand. I will never stop hunting and eating wild game. I also agree with you on the prices at the store. So out of hand right now. It is tougher at our place right now since my wife walked away from her job since the jab was mandated for her to keep her job. Strange times we are living in.
Additional comments because my original post was longer than I intended:
I think the phosphates in the marinade are what really make the difference. I think you would get similar results with any marinade assuming it contains them.
I pumped a lot of marinade into the loin with an injector. I’m sure this made a big difference with moisture retention also.
In my opinion, lean cuts like pork loin that are easy to dry out when grilling respond very well to marinades with phosphates.
I understand that there are some people are hesitant to use phosphates due to health concerns. I am not saying to use them on a daily basis. These marinades are great to use for a special occasion or a treat.
Thanks guys. I originally used the curing calculator off amazingribs.com, and my recipe has been working well for me. But I’d like to speed up the process (and increase production), so I’m looking at vacuum tumblers. But coming across information online has been challenging. Vacuum tumbler sales people don’t have recipes to reference either.
Jonathon I’m not against nitrates ( I use them in my bacon) I usually make this sausage from fresh or frozen pork and once the sausage is made I will hang it inside my walk in cooler to dry and then it’s vacuum sealed
I was so excited I ended clicking the link but was going to come back to ask about the picture LOL!!! How well do they fit different body size? My issues with aprons is because I am 6’6" and the lanyard that ties usually ends up uncomfortably sitting in the upper low back area.
Well, that’s no good. I hope the damage is minimal and they get back running soon. I am selling cattle later this month and I don’t want the price to tank and grocery store price to spike even higher like when the plant in western Kansas caught fire.
Hey guys, something is happening and some posts are being marked as questions and then they cannot be opened to be viewed or edited by anyone. We are aware o the problem and working with NodeBB to try to identify the issue and fdix it.
Its past midnight EST and September 11th is officially here. I have already made a toast to all of my brothers and sisters in arms who have paid with their lives to keep this country safe the past 20 years. I also toasted my fellow first responders, those Police Officers and Firefighters who selflessly gave their lives trying to rescue their fellow Americans who were in peril during the attack, and to the great Americans who made sure the 4th plane would never harm another American that day. Now I am here just drinking and reflecting on the past 20 years and praying that leadership is restored to this great nation, because it is definitely in short supply.
I am sure most of you can remember where you were and what you were doing at 8:46 am twenty years ago. I was sleeping because I worked the midnight shift as a newly promoted Police Sergeant. I got to bed about 8:00 am and was woken by a friend who was former Air Force, at about 9:45 am. He asked if I knew what had happened and of course I asked what are you talking about. He asked if Andy (fellow Marine and my best friend) was still assigned at the Pentagon, and I said yes. He told me to wake up and turn on the TV, that we were under attack. I woke up and watched in horror with the rest of the nation. The horror turned to fear when I realized my wife and 2 sons were in the same school building and I wasn’t with them. I called my wife and left a voice message to call me and started to the school. My second call was to my parents and my Mom answered the phone crying. All I could get out was , “Are you and Dad OK?”. She said yes, but I knew that was far from the truth. I told my Mom I loved her and would stop by as soon as I could. I headed to school to pick up my boys, knowing my wife couldn’t leave until the other kids were safely picked up. I called my best friends wife to see if she had heard from him and she was crying so hard she could hardly say “no”. It would be an entire day later before she called me to say she had heard from Andy, but he had to stay at work. Luckily he was not at the Pentagon when it was attacked. So all of the things that I remember the most about 9/11 was wanting to be with my family and friends to make sure they were safe. I know all of us have different memories from that day and some of you are young enough not to have memories of it at all. I really hoped our government and the people of this country learned from those horrific events, but I fear most have really forgotten. I hear some give lip service to what happened, but they have really forgotten. So to my fellow warriors, first responders, and patriots, thank you. Don’t forget what really happened the day 26 terrorist attacked our country unprovoked and killed nearly 3000 innocent Americans. Keep your families and friends close, because in the end that is all that really matters. Semper Fidelis and God Bless America.
Hey guys, just FYI in case anyone comes here looking for why they can’t place orders, the Create Order Button is not showing up currently on waltonsinc.com. We are aware and working on this. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Hey guys, if you post something, or see something posted that you think would be good for social media please tag it with #socialmedia That way we can easily see what you guys want to see us post over there. We are going to try to focus mostly on sausage making and jerky, things that are our core base but I know steaks and bbq are loved as well!
