Hey everybody, it's that time of the year again when our family takes a Step Out to fight diabetes. Our daughter Rachael is a type 1 diabetic. There is no known cure. We are supporting all of the millions that are affected by this terrible disease including type 2 diabetics. Most type 2's can make life style changes like exercise and nutritional changes to help, even stop their diabetes. Rachael currently has no choice being a type 1. Please help by donating to the link that goes to her Step Out site which is sponsored by the American Diabetes Association. She as well as millions of others need your help. Rachael is a 15 year old girl who loves to play soccer and basketball for her school. She loves to fish Lake Superior as well as inland lakes for gills, crappies, and the occasional walleye. Please take time and be a part of the cure. I am leaning heavy on all of my F/M family to help out. Ten bucks or more can make a huge difference. We thank you for all of the past F/M'ers who have helped and look forward to all new donators. BC http://main.diabetes.org/site/TR/StepOut...&fr_id=8711

It is a great cause and you will see me on the list again. It runs in my family,so far I am the only one without it but time will tell.

Hopefully one of these years we can meet up at the sturgeon excursion my problem is it's normally on turkey opener. Everyone knows how I love turkey hunting,heck I just declined a fully paid trip to Vegas because I would have had one day to hunt.

Knew We could count on ya snipe. Can't thank you enough for what you have done to help in the past, to include bow hunting advice for me. Hey, I picked it back up after 20 plus years from being away and even I understand how ya feel. Heck, I was shooting the new Mission Riot in the backyard when it was below zero this past winter. Can you say nutjob? I will say an extra prayer for you tonight that God willing you never have to deal with it. Type 1 or 2 run's in the family? Thanks bud. BC

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
