Hey, Char!!

I just had to show off my new smoke house. We just hung our first batch of sausage. I will make batch #2 tomorrow...I'm taking a day off today. I need to clean my kitchen and make some food.

The first picture is the inside of the smoke house...DUH!!

The second picture is DH's red neck engineering…I thought it was kind of funny but it works really well and is using stuff we already have.

Beeb...

I'll tell him his efferts were appreciated, he'll be very pleased. The smokehouse he made out of an old fish cleaning house that has been sitting on the property falling apart because nobody ever used it. He just used stuff we already had laying around to do the job so the price was right...$0.00

Give mine an engine and he can tear it down and put it together in record time and it will work better than ever, but carpentry just isn't his thing

OK, that does it - I am OFFICIALLY, insanely JEALOUS now!

That looks fantastic and I bet you're gonna have some mighty fine smokage out of that there smokehouse.

I LOVE the way he rigged up the smoker - I think it's perfect!

Now can't wait to see the finished sausages...you lucky lucky girl.

Rosethorns – Thank you, yes it did work great.

Marvin – A smoke house doesn’t really need to be that elaborate, we just happened to have an old fish-cleaning house on the property that we never used. It seemed a shame to let the structure just sit and rot without getting any use out of it so we decided to make a smoke house out of it.

The smoke house we had before was a very large shipping crate that DH got from work many years ago, with a tarp over it. It was old and falling apart, then DH, DS, and DSL each shot a deer on the same hunting trip and we were up to hips in deer meat. We needed new smokehouse so after a little brainstorming we decided that the fish-cleaning house filled the bill.

Jbatchelor –

Jennifer – No not a pioneer woman, I love my creature comforts too much. Just an old Southern girl.


Char - We cooked a link last night to check to see if it had enough smoke on it and OMG...this is some of the best sausage I've ever made. It is really good!!!! I wish you lived closer I'd love to share.

Where are you on the Gulf Coast? My inlaws used to winter in the Corpus Christi "area", and my parents usually go there every winter. I love that area!

We are out in the country about half way between Houston and Beaumont, in Liberty County; not far from Lousiaina.

Yeah, Wyoming is a far cry from Louisiana....

My mother's people are from Louisiana and my dad's people are from Mississippi. So naturally I grew up in Texas...

I haven't traveled much, DH lived all over the world growing up....military dad...but I'm afraid I'm boring.

Not Boring at all Ms. Chicken Lady

My daughter lived in Bay City, Texas, near Matagorda.
We visited every year but preferred it in winter.
We met her friend Flossie who lived nearby and she had
never been further than Houston. Flossie and her DH went
out in their boat and got dewberries and made their own
wine, she made all kinds of clothing and costumes. They
were square dancing their whole marriage. They were
fabulous people. They made everything themselves. I thought
they were most interesting people. They loved Texas and
were very satisfied with life. Everyone there had pecans dropping
all over the ground, and wild blackberries, kinda cross between
a blackberry and a logan berry. Taste much like our boysenberries
out here. She was also a fabulous cook. He hunted.
Yep just an old country
gal.

My best friend's parents live much the same way. They have a big garden and put up most of their own food. There are blackberries out the kazoo here if your up to going out in the heat and fighting the bugs and wild hogs for them. The pecans are easier to come by.

There are lots of fish and crabs if you like to fish...and wild hogs and deer if you like to hunt. Chickens are very easy to raise if you can keep the wild animals from eating them.

Fruit trees are plentiful, there are figs, wild plumbs, pawpaws, and here in South East Texas folks think if you don't have any Mayhaw jelly then you just don't have anything to eat but my favorite is the wild grape jelly.

Nope, if there is pig/deer hunting to be had, he'd leave 'em both to fend for themselves!

I agree with Barbo!

And BTW, I used to live north of Bay City too! Hey, I've lived LOTS of places.
By wile grape do you mean muscadines? I vaguegly remember papaws near where I grew up in AR. But haven't heard anyone around there speak of them in many years. My aunt down in Humble, TX used to put up Mahaw jelly every year. May still, I don't know. But I never knew what a Mahaw was. I've never seen any. I have muscadines canned that my MIL (OK) gave me several years ago. I pulled out a jar a few months ago, and made SF jam. Used Pomonas pectin, so it didn't add any sugar. She gave me blueberries that she grew this year, and I made SF jam from that first, then the muscadine.

As Barbo said, many people who have lived in the same place are the most interesting people. Don't have to move around or go lots of places to be interesting!

Would love to have you... but not long ago I was watching on the national news about the problems that the farmers in California where having with the wild hogs tearing up their crops. They are doing millions of dollars in damage... I think you have some good hog hunting closer than you think. I bet there are lots of farmers who would give permission to anyone who wanted to harvest a few hogs off their land.

Yeah, I'm talking about muscadines...

Mayhaws grow in the swampy areas along the Gulf Coast of Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi that I know of. They may go farther but I'm not sure. If you google Mayhaws you will see some pictures. I've read they are starting to cultivate them now so who knows they may end up on a grocery store shelf near you soon. I would love to see muscadines on a grocery store shelf or even a freezer shelf. To me mayhaws just don't have that much taste, I much prefer blackberries and muscadines.

There are places to hunt hogs a couple hours from here, BUT the farmers generally lease out their land to outfitters who charge big bucks to take you to the animals, AND you have to have tags ahead of time (and of course a hunting license, which requires a 4 hour test) so it's not a slam-bang thing.

We are actually looking into all that though.

My cousin has a ranch someplace in north/central Texas and is always sending home wild boar sausage and deer stew meat to his Dad - every now and then my uncle turns loose of some of it and I get to make some chili or something yummy!

But man I LOVE wild hog chops, rack, ribs....
