I drilled the side as a pilot hole using a very small tiny bit first and then checked surroundings with a thin wire to determine if there are any lines next to it. I was expending the hole step by step always checking with a thin wire until finally cut 2 inch diameter hole. This hole was intended to...

"What is the purpose of running the Turkey chunks through the kidney plate without a blade? Can't you just cut them small enough by hand?"
- This was exactly my first though: why not just cut them? But sausage looks great! As usual....

redzet, this sausage looks very nice and it is easy to make! I am just wondering: if this sausage suppose to stay in curing chamber for up to 4 weeks, why not to use cure 2 instead of cure 1? This is literally dry curing without a fermentation process.... Am I missing something here? Thank you!

Is this meat can be used to make sausages ?

Hi everyone! My both local supermarkets advertised pork sirloin chops and shoulder blade roast for $0.99 per # for this week. Really good deal but I am not sure if this meat can be used to make sausages (taste wise) and need your opinion on this. Also, what class of meat this relates? Thank you!

Bob K, Thank you very much for the information you have provided and it is very helpful. StefanS design is definitely looks great but it is quite a project. Taking in consideration my very space- limited backyard - it`s just not doable for me. On the other hand the second design (form the link you ...

Hi Butterbean, Once again, thank you for giving me a general idea on how to build my own, "propane based" smoker. Very interesting and easy to build (and cheap!!!) but I have several question thought: 1. "Air flow through these holes are regulated by simply using electrical box plates which are snug...
