Well since we can't fish this weekend we are canning. You know how boring it is baby sitting a canner, so come keep us awake from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday July 21st. You may bring a beverage of your choice and a lawn chair as we will be confined to the garage and drive way.

I'm not going to put you to work, but come talk tuna or just have a brew.

I didn't really want to call it a TA meeting even though we are all jones'ing to get back out, and since those are usually at some reputable location other than my den of inequity ;)

HiTekRdNek, Hoggemin and I will be manning the canners and the smoker last count was around 7 canners at one stage or another and probably more fish than we know what to do with.

If you have not been to the lumber yard and wish to attend - drop me a PM - we're in Tigard not far from Home Depoe

1) Don't can TUNA! indoors. Can today smell it tommorrow (forever).

2) Make sure to add enough water. The water regulates the temperature. As long as water is boiling off the temp will not go above about 250 degrees at 15 #. I use a 23 Qt Mirro. Correct water level for me is 1/2 way up the top row of jars.

3) Make sure the fire goes out if you are getting done late. Once I just turned the gas off and crashed when the last load was done. I woke up the next day to hear the canner still hissing. Yikes 12 hours cook time.

I'd love to be there but a friend is having an engagement party at the same time and he invited first.
