My wife just gave me this hand made 30oz. Water bottle. She made it last weekend I guess. She did a great job.
I am just a simple retired Military Man. I served 26 years in the Navy and now work for the State of Colorado. I have a passion for hunting and fishing which is a great segway into Meat Processing and Smoking. I process all of my own game and love doing so.

Apple smoked cinnamon sugar pecans
This is about as as easy as it gets
2 egg whites
1/4 tsp salt
1 and 1/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup of sugar
6 tablespoons butter
1 pound of pecan halves
- Get a tray to smoke almonds in. I punched small hole in it to assist in a quick smoke. Preheat smoker to 100 degrees.
- Melt half the butter and pour over almonds. Stir very well
- Put in the smoker and smoke at 100 degrees for 15 minutes (the PK100 adds a lot of smoke). Do not over smoke. You just want a hint of smoke flavor
Preheat oven to 325. Add remaining butter to 2 cookie sheet pans and throw them into the preheating oven.
In a mixing bowl add the egg whites and salt. Whisk this up hard for about a minute. Add in cinnamon and sugar and mix well. Pour in almonds and mix very well. Get that thick mix in all Of the and cracks on the pecans.
Split mix into the two cookie sheets (spreading the now melted butter all around. Make sure your pecans are spread out and lay flat
- Cook for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Turn over the pecans using a spatula. Make sure to scrap the bottom of cookie sheet. Lay them out flat again.
Repeat step 7 two more times.
After the third ten minute cook. Take them out of oven. Scrape the cookie sheet with spatula. Turn them over and lie them flat again.
- Let cool for 2 hours. Then pig out

RE: First time snack sticks and thermo processing
I also agree that the Sous Vide method of finishing to temp really works well. In fact its my new thing. The PK100 imparts so much smoke flavor, that I no longer finish in it. Placing them in a sous vide bath does not lose the flavor of the smoke.
If you feel that there might be an issue with your smoker give this guy a call. He was very helpful to me when I was getting started with my PK100.

RE: Giving it my first try ,looking for a Recipe for venison hamburgers patties on the grill
kyle . I do a lot of deer and elk here in Colorado. I mix in some strips of smoked bacon before I grind. Usually does the trick. I Also really like using the Waltons Jalapeno Patty Mix for some heat. Just be careful, the stuff is hot. Package says add to 6 pounds. Better use 10 pounds / pack. Excellent burgers.
