Default other uses for the beer fridge.

I just made 5 pounds of pepperoni and salami from elk/venision. I am dry aging the salami in the fridge for a few weeks.

My keezer usually houses a variety of bottled beer and anything from thanksgiving turkey to dozens of eggs or whatever else we have stocked up on. It's really handy actually

Lookin good on the sausages hangin... Not to be a kill joy, but you should consider putting a chain around that cylinder to keep a possible disaster from happening. I made a few pounds of Greek Loukinikos sausages today and after I smoke them Sunday I plan to put them in my keezer and let them finish ageing and drying at around 55 degrees. I already have a few pounds of Salami/Pepper Jack cheese ageing in there with a slow lager already. Should be an excelent Valentines day if everything works just right......

I have carboy that is empty with water vapor in it with temps up and down. winter has been wierd here in northern Wisconsin.

The salami is smoked at about 200 for six hours then hung 1.5 weeks unitil it felt dry. so far impartial review are "when you making more so I can have some".
