Smoker Sticks
« on: February 12, 2004, 01:03:19 am »
One item I would like to see Bradley offer is smoker sticks to hang sausages from.  I made my own from aluminum angle stock, but would have gladly bought them if available.  I just put them across the smoker from the supports that the racks rest on.  That way you can hang sausages verticle so that any grease produced by not so perfect smoking (which I have done on occasion), will run to the ends of the summer sausage and can just be cut off.[xx(]

I haven't smoked sausage...YET!  But I'm curious about whether or not  you could invert the top rack and use stainless steel 'S' hooks to hang sausages from the rack (and other "hanging" meats)??? [?]

I have been using the metal rack that came with it. Slide the sausage string through one of the holes in the rack and put a small stick (actually been a twig right now) through the string.

Before I had my Bradley I used a converted refrigerator to smoke in.I hung the rings of sausage from wooden dowls. Worked OK but not great, the bottom of the rings would get hard and almost burnt till the temp was right on the top rings. For this reason I like using racks for even heat & smoke.Never had to rotate the racks although you could about half way through. I have nice pics but havn't figured out how to post them.[:(]I used extra racks when I used the Bradley and doubled the capacity.I'll probably never hang my sausage again![V]

I find S hooks to be a quick and easy alternative to smoke sticks, though I use both depending on the situation. I also use them in the fridge for hang drying various products.

Good one, Kummok [:)]

Regforte and Kummock,

Thanks for the suggestion on the S-hooks.  I am going to start making some sausage next month.  (Have to wait to buy the F.Dick stuffer I want.).  Have ordered and received about 50# of different whole unground spice to start making my own rubs, and to season the sausage.  I like to grind up my own, and a little chunky is a good thing for me.

OK, I thought I knew about most of the players, but I've never heard of this company, and quite frankly, am scared to do a web search on it![:0][;)][:D]

Bubba,

To save you and your dignity, I am providing the web spot I am buying the stuffer from.  
http://www.butcher-packer.com/pg_stuffers_stuffers_dickhand.htm
I bought a lot of my spices here, and have not seen this new at a better price anywhere else.

There are three suffers from this German company on Ebay right now, but the units are just too big for my little home sausage stuffing endeavors.

Ebay Links:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=11880&item=3830642695&rd=1

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=11880&item=3830652166&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

And a real nice  stainless one for $700 that has a bid on it now:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=11880&item=3830642677&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

These are much too big and too pricey for me.

I want a good stuffer, as I know my daughter will borrow in their yearly sausage making party, and I know I want to start doing some too.  I just don't need a 30# at a time stuffer...I am new to it, and think it would be fun and very tasty.

Glad to save from getting a red face looking for F. Dick on internet searches![:)]

<b></b><font size="3"></font id="size3"><font color="black"></font id="black"><font face="Comic Sans MS"></font id="Comic Sans MS">I notice that there are several looking for sausage stuffers and the like. I do business with a great place that is just a few miles from where I live. They are called L.E.M. Products Inc. They have online catalog (not too great)that can be reached at WWW.LEMPRODUCTS.COM. I would suggest you request their catalog that is really great with good illustrations at phone # 513-202-9494. They sell sausage stuffers for as low as $69.00 and up and have tons of other processing equipment.-----------------Have fun!!!!!!!!KINGFISH <font color="red"></font id="red"><font color="red"></font id="red">&lt;"}}}}&gt;&lt;
