Got word today that my 30qt all american canner has a tracking ### and it will be here wed!

It was ordered 1 aug 20
The 30 can handle two qts in depth right? I think we have the 21qt. Plus an older mirro 21qt. Sure are nice to have when processing cases of jars! That 30 will be great addition to your food tool collection!

You are correct and that is 1 of 2 reasons why i saved to get this one.  The other reason is that i dont need a rubber seal for it.

The size and weight is not that big of an issue for me, as i run it on my low pressure burner outside. 

And as back ups i still have my 16qt presto and 22 qt mirro (1960ish vintage).

Got word today that my 30qt all american canner has a tracking ### and it will be here wed!

Pressure canner?

Correct jon.  just like anything else canning related, there is a huge back order of these.  At the time i ordered it, it said i would get it 1 nov 20 which was ok since i still had my other 2.  Looking at times now, i have seen statements saying aug 21 already.

Heres info on the canner:

And heres where i got mine from:

Had to make some modifications to wendys plant stand to get it ready to start tomatoes, bell peppers and hot peppers from seed in about 1.5 months.

Also, the sad state of the meyer lemon tree gave motivation for the conversion.

Bobby you should come out and shot a match some time.  I am hosting a couple matches this year that I won't be able to shoot in; would be more then happy to lend you my rifle, ammo, gear etc...  Also, if you sign up and shoot a WPRSC match they have a very nice loaner rifle, they let you shoot if it's your first match.  It's a lot of fun with an awesome group of guys.  All these matches are open to the public and you can come spectate if you want.



The challenge has been laid out

8 hours later, i got about 2/3 cup of tomato powder.  I started with roughly 3.5lbs of roma tomatoes.  I think i could have let it run a bit longer, as there are a few bigger chunks left.

Now i just have to get some oxygen and moisture absorbers.

So I settled on an STX International Dehydrator  that has a 1200W coil.  It has 10 trays, all stainless steel and a detachable coil/fan assembly.

The 16oz water bottle is there for size comparison, and this thing is BIG!

The first thing i am going to try is roma (or plumb) tomatoes to make tomato powder.

I have litterally spent the last 3 days on the road.

I went from nowhere, SD. to home, to turn around the next morning and head to NW Wisconsin for a funeral tuesday morning, and right after that to make the return run back home.

Should i mention the hissy fit code my truck sent because i made it breath 0 deg temps which cost me $188 to have it thawed, code cleared and has to put the front winter kit cover on.....that was all during the funeral.  :facepalm:

Then the 8 hour drive which normally takes 6.5hrs through the nasty storm that just smashed the upper mid-west.  Lots and lots of moronic scared drivers in the ditches.  Ol black betty never blinked an eye with 1K in the bed and the tires aired down to 60-65psi.

Yea that would be spicy! Scorpions are something to the tune of 1.7-1.9 million scoville. We grew them once, in AZ.... next to our jalapeño plants. Certainly turned up the heat on the jalapeños!

Many of you are probably like me in that you use foil a great deal in your smoking and cooking.

I’ve struggled to find a real bona fide heavy duty foil

After a great deal of research I’ve settled on this.  24 inches wide and extremely thick. Not really good for basic use but for wrapping big cuts of meat and lining pans on the smoker that won’t burn through. 

Not cheap by any means at about $125 a roll but it is a huge roll (500 ft) that should last for years.

i think this is the same thickness?

Nate, how big is your exercise room?  I’m planning to build one about 10x16 in the garage and wanted to see how big yours is for perspective.


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

13' 6" x 14' 8"

Before you build one in the garage, find whatever rubber flooring your going to use and build it to that size so you dont have to cut the flooring to match.
Didn’t think of that about the flooring, thanks for the tip. I can build it whatever size I need, the garage is only 6000 sqft, so I’m flexible. :)


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Dave, just be prepared for the cost of the equipment right now.  The supply system that was never designed for this massive demand is hanging on by a single thread.  I have a line on a lot of equipment, most of it is up your way, so if you need some assistance i can help you out.
I’ve got some of what I need for now, need to pick up a new treadmill, a mouse took a sauna on the Control board of the old one and treated me to a whiff of burnt ozone.
Besides that I just need a bench and possibly an elliptical so one person can do treadmill and the other can do elliptical. I’ve got enough free weights to last me until the burgeoning market turns into a glut of used gear and I can pick it up at a better price.
