    Favorite Crappie And Sunny Jig

    it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now. Still learning

    house finches hang around here all winter and would be rare to see a purple. purples pop thru spring and fall and sometimes a few hang around in the spring for a while. love seeing them. i dodnt think there is a good map for the house finch, they are probably all over the us by now

    Jerky Recipes And Cooking Methods?

    yep, try 155 next time, they dry nice and even. when I do canadian bacon in the smoker i pull it out at 150. dry at 145 would probably work fine also but would take a long time.

    Jerky Recipes And Cooking Methods?

    for dry brine 24 hours per 1/4 inch. I cut a little thicker so 36 works for me. wet brine for ground 4 hours is good. 8 hours for wet whole meat? have not done that so should be fine if directions say it is.

    Jerky Recipes And Cooking Methods?

    did pork jerky last week and just started the dehydrator again with another 4 pounds. hickory from hi mountain and I add a tsp pepper to 4 pounds meat. it has pepper in the mix already but gotta have a touch more. personally, i prefer the dryer over the smoker. should be done in about 5 hours. i started doing the pork a strong 1/4 inch and thicker is better. also started pickling gills last night.
