Today is hanging day and what a day it's been....

Before I started I realized I was low on butchers twine so I headed out to get some.... On the way I realized I was broke because I paid dues at the firehouse so had to hit a ATM... Then the wife called and I had to swing by the firehouse to get some stuff I had there... then she wanted me to get some **** for the kid... needless to say instead of being done right after breakfast I just finished now.... just in time to start dinner >.<

Anyway doing 1 hot and 1 sweet


biggest issue I ran into was I screwed up when I ordered my casings and they were too small so I had to improvise....
after some research I found a method using wood shims and zip ties sooooooooooooooooo


Just have to keep cinching down the ties as the meat drys but since I have to add water to the humidifier ever couple days thats no biggie.
So guess I'll be posting again sometime in May
