    Happy Smoked Turkey Day From Wisconsin!

    Happy Smoked Turkey Day From Wisconsin! We do things a little differently than the traditional baked turkey. We love to smoke ours in the Orion Smoker. If you’ve never had smoked turkey before, then you’re missing out! It’s crispy on the outside, but tender, moist, and juicy on the inside. You may be asking, “what is an Orion”? An Orion Smoker is an outdoor stainless steel charcoal-fired convection oven. It uses three cooking methods at the same time: convection, steam, and smoke (optional). This cooking process is quick and the food turns out great. The Orion Cooker can cook a 20 pound turkey quickly ( about 2 1/2 hours) and…

    The Day Before Thanksgiving

    The Day Before Thanksgiving we got about 4-6 inches of snow in my area of Central Wisconsin. The local natives had a bit of a difficult time navigating through it. You see the turkey with the light blonde feathers? That’s blonde, she’s been around for a long time. The first time I saw her, she was pecking at the ground around my bird feeder when she was a little one. She’s always had a special place in my heart, because there aren’t any like her around. Blonde seem’s to keep everyone in line, once in a while she enforces the pecking order. When the winter snow begins, I  keep a…

    The Full Beaver Moon of 11-11-2019

    The Full Beaver Moon of 11-11-2019 was an interesting one. On one side of the full moon it was snowing, while on the other side the sky was clear. This created and interesting haze and orange glow around the moon. The moon rose in the East on 11-11-2019 around 4:33 pm. When it peaked over the horizon it had to climb above a thick layer of clouds before I could see it. Once it was high enough, it was visible along these towers. This is one of my favorite shots. photographing the moon climbing it’s way up to the top of the towers. If you’re interested in knowing more about…
