finished! Takes a while to calibrate every thing in sync, but I can dial in to 0.5 of a degree each side of my set temp, and within 1.5-2% each side of my humidity setting. Awesome piece of equipment!!

I'm going to move close to your place and stalk you for meat products. ;)

No, seriously that is a very impressive set up and demonstrates your understanding of your craft. I am in awe of it and one day will be able to do something like that.

Thanks for sharing

ahhhh geez thanks guyz! Remember im always open to questions via post or pm. I know a fair bit but don't know everything and im always learning and chatting to the older guys at work. The older methods, and new methods. I love my craft, its my job, passion and hobby. Couldn't help myself today, brought home a pork scotch for Coppacolo, a pork loin for Lombo/Lonzino and a beef eye round for Bresola. And lastly, if any of you guyz are ever in Adelaide, pm me for a beer and tasting ;)

Thanks Cobblerdave, yeah it is possible to make these kinds of things at home, I put a lot of research into it but its paid off. This was my budget version, $6 worth of cheap plastic and a pot of water on a camp burner but it produced the goods.

Nice :)

Not sure I would do it because there are just two of us and she is a pretend vegan but very interesting nonetheless :)

Cheers
