  1. so I brought a tuna & snapper back from florida. I have 1/4 of a tuna loin about 6 pounds & 4 snapper fillets about 10 pounds with a dry rub on them wrapped in plastic wrap sitting in fridge to smoke tomorrow. after I rinse & pat dry do you add spices to fish now or wait till the last hour of smoking. last time I waited & didn't think I got enough of the flavoring. I put maple syrup & seasoning & smoked for another hour. I also couldn't get the temp to 150 on the tuna & it was good but pretty dry. I got it to 130 & it stalled out.
  2. walleyehooker has got it right. best recipe + very firm pieces as long as everything is kept cold during entire process. I make the brine the day before or in winter set it outside till very cold.
  3. as you walk through hy-vee & see the little sale signs on items lift the sale tag & look at the regular price. they are the same.. but we must be stupid enough to fall for it as the new hy-vee was 23 million I believe & my wife loved it. plus its a mile from home.
  4. hey reinhard can you explain to an old man how to access your blog. computer knowledge not my thing.
  5. I am so happy you are back reinhard
  6. I was taught to fry a potatoe to clean the oil of the fishy taste. I usually cut one in half & fry it a bit & it seems to make a difference. on new oil this wouldn't be needed. only after a couple of prior uses.
  7. I got more than 30 from my yard & garden last year by using rat traps baited with peanut butter.
  8. spent 5 hours looking on the minn iowa border Thursday. very few & far between until I spotted a nice looking tree that got me 81 yellow & grey in perfect condition. very strange year for me.
  9. just this week I was in a class on lawn care & this question came up. the instructor said coca cola worked well to kill moss. worth a try.
  10. I like the soup from qiick trip stations. they sell them in bags also.
  11. [ Do you have the Batter recipe?
  12. they do not plow roads in that area. even if they did plow the roads they would probably blow shut in a very short amount of time. unless you want stripers I would look for a different lake around the area. the perch & walleye are few & far between. call doug at the bait shop in webster for the latest info out there.
  13. onafly you are correct it is 93/7
  14. I buy the 96/4 hamburger from target for jerky. very little grease. when done I wrap in paper towels overnight than into vacuum bags.
  15. my idea is to fly to ft.meyers take the key west express to key west my dream trip. haven't talked my wife into it though
