A few observations - Pic heavy

13 posts in this topic

1st: Always check the cooking forum frequently, this seems to be the catch all for anything related to this page.

2nd: When you see bets that involve smoked/cured meats from members, enter as you never know when you may get lucky (I did on the final score of the Minn – Hawks game and won!)

3rd: When you win, the creators of the contest rapidly connect with your using HSO’s PM service which was nice.

4th: When the first box gets delivered in a very short period of time, sealed with duct tape and the return address just says “Boar” have your wife open it.  I feel I am more bombable than she is.

4.5: Who is this BOAR guy anyway, don’t you have to be a socialite or famous to just have a single name you like Cher or Madonna?

5th: The two boxes I have received, included a nice little note.  Read those so you know what you are getting into.

6th: After you filter through all the bacon, summer sausage, beef jerky and Canadian bacon there is still one item left neatly wrapped in shop towels that I am leery of opening.  I immediately reverted back to the 4th step which is have the wife open it, low and behold 2 hunks of smoked cheese one smoked apple-wood American and the other gouda.

7th: Try to explain who these people are that are sending us these treats to a 9-6-4 year old, their first response was “Dad, you tell us all the time not to make friends on the internet”

8th: Explain to children, Dad isn’t always right.

9th: Get mom all mad right before dinner as we ate the summer sausage, jerky and a big hunk of cheese, by the time dinner was done all 4 of us said we are not hungry!

10th: Drool for this weekend as I am cooking up the traditional bacon and Canadian bacon Sat morning before one of their big swim meets. 

 

In all honestly, wow was it good and completely appreciated.  I will be checking the archives for these recipes and tricks, because I can only hope they turn out as good when I try to make these.  As for those of you who are against using backstraps for jerky, you need to rethink your position.  Thank you again, LoveBigBlueGills , Boar, and Reinhard1

I'm glad that everything was a hit with your family (despite getting the missus a bit perturbed about ruining your appetites;)).

The recipes are pretty simple for the stuff I sent, and if you have any questions, just ask and somebody will help you out.

Thank you for putting all of the pictures in your post, they are great to see, especially your kids enjoying everything. The smiles say it all, and made my day!!!

Actually, I appreciate this and will (hopefully soon) put it to good use.

Hope you find some use for it.  Otherwise regift it Donbo.   I have owned the business for about 15 years and my wife and I make everything except we hire the neighbor boy to help us with some of it.  Great kid.

Boar and Lindell both cashed in too the previous couple weeks. ;) But knowing how much the three of you and your families enjoyed what I sent to you, I may just figure something out for this weekend.

That's become my biggest joy of cooking/smoking anything is hearing people say how good it is.

Thank you again PK for the compliments!!!

Good to meet you, Joe!  Just another testament to the good guys that contribute to this forum.  Walked in to a bar -The infamous "Liquor Hole" in Kilkenny, MN (The pun is definitely intended, you should see the sign.) looking for a complete stranger.  Not too tough to figure out who you're looking for when someone walks in with a bag of meat, I guess. Anyway, sat there and talked like we've known each other for 20 years. I really hope we can get a bigger gathering going - I think it would be more like a family reunion than a first-time gathering.

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
