Um... high side of the recommended range, but below (rather than on the high side of) the recommended limit. ...which is what I think you meant. (Sometimes, the English gets in the way.)

I should mention to those of you readers who are not from the USA that, for the most part, disputes are no longer settled with firearms. Instead, we at WD resolve things with jerky guns or, better still, sausages. It's not covered in the Marianskis' books, but it is possible to tie hog casing into a...

El Duckster , ...I`d like to hear your slant on "biscuits and gravy".... Wish I could, Chuckster, but in my gluten-free, low-fat household, both biscuits and gravy are considered toxic substances. We do make corn-based breads (arepas are a newly-acquired skill) and thicken things with corn starch, ...

El Ducko here, checkin` in. I made two breakfast sausages, one bound, the other not. Both were, of course, delicious. Actually, both started out bound (outbound?), but the second one being my favorite chorizo recipe, the bind broke when the vinegar was added. Vinegar is a typical flavor component ca...

It pays to read ahead, but only slightly. Number one, you can study up on the material but it will still be fresh when you need it. Mainly, though, number two, you`ll have the proper supplies on hand, rather than having to wait for a shipment. Being "pro"active (yuk yuk), I went to my not-so-local C...

...and if successful have a full and frank discussion with DW. Phil, you'd better tell her that, "Uh... I think I'll go to the Texas-vs-Perdue game in Austin." I doubt that there IS such a game, but by the time she figures that out, you'll be safely back in Texas and can hide out at our place. (The...

From the "mature or cold smoke for about 6 days" statement, I surmise that a short natural fermentation takes place. The author doesn't give details about drying, but it may be that weight loss due to drying dur...

I know ya don't like people substituting ingredients, CW, but what about substituting real maple syrup for those 2 tablespoons of Mapleline (maple flavoring) in the Canadian Bacon recipe?
