    Yeah I go the full emulsification route... I do it in batches and keep it in the freezer as I go...basically the Ruhlman and Polcyn "Charcuterie" recipe that I've tweaked with venison and pork fat...lotta work for hotdogs for sure, but at least you know what's in them...same with the venison/shrimp boudin...note the extra bag for boudin balls...

    And to celebrate "The Cure" making it into the RRHOF...venison sopprassetta, venison bresaola, and a standard capicola...

    Grilling 2018

    Drop dead gorgeous day down here...worked in shorts and T-shirt...not like the Egg hasn't been fired up lately, but tonight was venison backstrap stuffed with spinach, basil from buddy's greenhouse and last summer's dried tomatoes...with a stuffed chicken side for the non-gamer boyfriend (amazingly still around) and some smoked venison sausage for a taste tickler...

    Podcast Anarchy?

    Been keeping up with Snags' movie review thread and found it to be a great source of information...I'm sure there's a few more podcast junkies in this group, and am looking for the same kind of feedback...personal favourites include Dan Carlin's "Hardcore History" 5-hour epics for roadtrips..."Ear Hustle", life in San Quentin..."More Perfect" about the Supreme Court"..."Shit Town"...Malcolm Gladwell's "Revisionist History", the episode "King of Tears" was a classic look at country music...

    Are you suggesting pork sword is kosher???

    From what I read, deer is not automatically "fine"... In addition to specifying which animals can and cannot be eaten, Jewish dietary law requires that land animals be slaughtered according specific protocols. (Learn more about kosher slaughter here.) All blood must be drained from the meat before it is prepared. The meat of animals that werehunted or were found after they died of natural causes is not kosher. Might wanna check that lamb you served was slaughtered correctly...

    No bacon? No sausage? No crab/shrimp?...and I guess because the venison was hunted not slaughtered in a kosher manner it's out too...poor little fucker would starve to death in the Grabs household...
