 Hey at least you can hang and dry cure meats! In Florida it would just rot and be eaten by swarms of mosquitoes!

 That's almost something you could call... pickled smoked bratwursts! Sounds really interesting and delicious.
Edit: I can understand one not liking the texture. To me though, it's the same concept as cutting against the grain. They aren't really designed to puree your meat. If you're getting a texture of pre-chewed food I'd say you're either over doing it or using it on a meat that probably didn't need it to start with.

Work has kicked my butt this month. I might sneak in a couple more. This was so very up my ally this month but it goes to show sometimes we just have to put food in our mouths, go to bed and get up and do it again. I'll give it my best shot coming into the finish line.
