Fully smoked and cooked and ready for the chilling shower.
Love my Glowforge. It is so useful in many ways. 5mm cheap plywood and some 1/2" oak dowels and there you go. Almost two months since I used it last. Fired up perfectly and did just what I needed.
And if you every want to learn how to make sausage, Opa Jochen is the best. I usually use Rytek Kutas’s Polish sausage recipe as a base, but watching Opa I learned a lot too. I’m trying to replicate the flavor of Piekatowski’s in St. Louis. They make a great kielbasa and thick Krakow. Very simple recipe. Mainly the marjoram and coriander give it a sweet note. Some nice black pepper flakes. Dried garlic and fresh garlic in mine. Hint of fresh ground mustard seed. A couple allspice berries. 1/2 Shoulder and 1/4 belly 3mm plate and 1/4 country ribs/sirloin roast 6mm plate.
Yep. Trolling with that topic heading. I was perplexed about smoking these. My cabinet smoker is out of commission and the Traeger isn’t the best for sausage since the grates mark the surface and can burn too. Was thinking of a way to put a thick carboard box on top of my Big Green Egg. I think that would have worked. I’ve smoked a lot of things with a Smoky Joe mini kettle grill and a big appliance box. But then I had an idea to make this hanging frame. It worked great.
It’s not clear to me that if you are using say cherry or other hardwood on a long cut project that the exhaust cant be hooked up to smoke the sausages or whatever else. This might actually be a half decent way to quickly cold smoke say salmon - oh say while you are engraving cedar planks…
It crossed my mind to use the GF as a cold smoke generator. Off label use. Just engrave a flat hunk of hickory or cherry hardwood. Not sure if there are particulates from the laser I wouldn’t want, but it’s a thought.
