HEB had boston butts on sale, 97cLb. so I got 2, a total of 19 Lb.
1 lb of sugar cure, tender quick, with black pepper ,garlic powder, and ground cayenne added, then a trip through the LEM grinder with an 8mm plate, then in the refrigerator for 4-5 days to cure, then into 35mm natural casing and off to the new smoker for 8 hours of either hickory or mesquite smoke.
When it is smoked, I shall post a photo.

All in the pool, uh, smoker.
I shall post a picture when it is smoked.
I am using chunks of mesquite and hickory for the smoke, in my high tech ,15 oz. sardine tin on the hotplate smoke source.
I intend to take the temperature up to at least 180'F, air temperature.

Oops, it appears I have a defective hotplate, I cannot get the 1000W coil on, so all has been done with the 500W coil, maximum temperature, 170'F.

New hotplate got here today, only 3 days after ordering it.
Interestingly, it was ordered on Ebay, but shipped by Amazon!
Humm, wonder what is going on?
Both coils work,on this one so I shall be able to find out the temperature range available in the smaller smoker.
I am going to have to cook this batch of sausage, always a good idea , anyway

   Good news that both coils work!  That is odd about Amazon on Ebay...but whatever works!

With the new hotplate I can exceed 200', easily.
Just did some salmon jerky, other than a bit too much salt, it is nice, even if all I can get is farmed atlantic salmon.
