OV, Have you ever smoked any of the salmon you caught? One of my brothers who lived in Southern BC had a smoke house. He'd smoke salmon also make sausages from moose meat and smoke them also. Between that and his garden produce he didn't buy alot of groceries except beer and booze....:laughing7: :laughing7::laughing7:
Yes. Smoked salmon is goooood. I now have a Z grills wood pellet smoker so salmon is next. It is very efficient but small. It was used for venison already. I have experimented with different brines, hot, sweet etc.

My cousin is a geneologist, which is partly why I know so much about my families history. She wrote a book on my family history once they reached America, and I use that book constantly for research on my own.

Recently she's been diving into the family that stayed behind in Germany, and never emigrated to America. They were farmers, bankers, lawyers, all living in Trier, and little towns in the area along the Moselle River in Germany, and across the border into France a little bit. (so technically I have some Frenchie blood, even though they have the old German name. :laughing7:)

She also found soldiers, and a bunch of them. Most served in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-1871. She found five of them that served in WWI, and two in WWII. Mind you they are very distant cousins, not directly related. It's very cool to have that lineage, even the WWI bit. I'm a bit concerned about my WWII cousins though, however distant they may be. She's trying to see if they belonged to a um... certain "party", but hasn't found anything about it yet. One of them was killed in Russia in 1943.

Rusty, Glad you're keeping well, insofar as the German side of the family is concerned I wouldn't sweat it. Keep in mind anyone who's in the military regardless of country is pretty much commited to the cause whether or not they believe in it or not. Just comes with the territory.

We went as far back as the Teutonic Knights! Deus Vult, lol.


It's interesting, that's for sure.

It's weird thinking about it. I had ancestors fighting on both sides of the same war, twice. And it wasn't even the American Civil War.

Hope you've all had so much turkey, that you don't want to see another hot turkey sandwich until Christmas. :laughing7:

I watched the video and he certainly was a lot calmer then I would've been finding all that gold. :laughing7:
