Perfectly Cooked Pheasant and Delicious Homemade Bread
Weekly Blog Post - Perfectly Cooked Pheasant and Delicious Homemade Bread
Find out what's going on at Walton's and Meatgistics this week. We will have a loose schedule for soon to be released videos, what we are working on long term and maybe a few quick tips and tricks that are on our mind!
What Videos are being released soon?
Homemade Sundried Tomato Basil Bread - We were not even planning on doing a video when we made this, it was just so we could have some fresh bread but it came out so good that we decided we needed to do a short video!
How to Make Homemade Salami - We decided to put our Salami Seasoning (and Jon) to work and show you guys how to make great homemade Salami. Now, this isn’t a Dry-Cured product but a Salami that will resemble Summer Sausage in texture.
What Projects are we looking ahead at?
We are working on a new organization for Meatgistics that we hope will help anyone visiting our site learn how to make great homemade products. This will be structured in a Class schedule with the 101, 102, 103, etc. classes being basics and the 2 classes being more advanced. Our goal here is to have something for everyone, the absolute newbie meat processor can learn the basics without getting lost and the advanced processor can learn new tips and tricks and the science behind what they are doing.
What’s on our Mind?
I want to smoke a pork loin today with the Cyclops Greek Marinade and I did not start it last night. This is not technically a soluble seasoning so I put the amount I needed to inject in our Weston Pro Series Blender and let it run for a few minutes with no liquid. I then added the required liquid and let it run again to mix it all up and injected into my pork loin. Not sure if this will work with every seasoning but it might make injecting non-soluble seasonings an option.
We just got our new Grilleye Pro Plus in stock! This thing looks like it is going to be a lot of fun to use and I am testing it out this week. As soon as I have everything I need I will get a product review uploaded and released on youtube.
@cayenneman That is more like smoking pork butts or brisket. I did a whole wild turkey at 225F and since there is so little fat on them to start with I used it to make a turkey noodle soup and that little bit of extra smoke on the turkey is a game changer! I used the bones to make the stock and it also had a little smokeyness to it, delicious. Don’t be afraid to run the smoker up 225-250F. Just make sure get it warm and dry before putting the smoke to it so it will stick better.
@rhjbarney That is the second time in recent weeks I have heard sausage referred to as Cigars, I like it and I am sure I can come up with a clever (for me at least) social media post about it. Also, I use a lot of the pictures our users post here on Walton’s Instagram, Facebook and twitter accounts and also Meratgistics Face Book accounts. Consider this my shameless plug to follow our social media accounts.
@Boxie Give us as much information as you can on your process and we will see if we can figure it out. So, it was 60% pork and 40% venison? What cuts of pork did you use? How much water, what seasoning, what was your mixing and grinding like, did you get enough protein extraction, what was your smoke schedule?. Pretty much as much detail as you can give will help because at 60/40 with carrot fiber there is no reason it should be dry.
Oh, and what tye of sausage were you making?
