    Default Hog Fest Tamales are Ready for Delivery!


    First - My Feet are Killing Me! I have made over 700 Tamales in the last 2 days. Standing in front of the Tamale Extruder for 12 hours has my dogs Howling. My feet are on .
    Anyway Here is a quick rundown to get to the last picture by way of the first picture.

    This is yesterday's batch, nice and thick Tamales. These are for a get together this weekend of like minded Crappie Anglers to do a little visiting. Bon Temps is supposed to join us too when he gets in from fishing. We are blessed with a nice weather day and cool evening which with the BTU's these Tamales generate we will need to sit in the cool to keep from sweating.

    It takes lots of Corn Husks for lots of Tamales so I have double Husk soaking bowls with double Husks in each bowl.

    If your making Tamales and want them to have a lite Masa you must use Lard. I have a few other ingredients but until we see if the Tamales win anything I have to keep the seasonings hidden.

    Kinda run of the mill procedures here, mix all your dry, cut in your fat, add your wet ingredients.



    Getting ready to add the Masa dry ingredients a spoon at a time.

    Your looking for a fine crumbly mixture in your Masa. I'm pretty much there now in the video but I did let it run out the timer about 5 minutes more.

    This is what 522 Tamales looks like in one Chiller. The top shelf Tamales are the ones for the Judges, you take extra care when making them.

    The VIP section under the tent will have inflatable Lounge Couches to rest on with blower fans if you need cooling off after too many BTU's of Pork are trying to digest in your system. The team is "Que Dat". I threw down my absolute best Tamales I ever made hopefully they will blow out. Other offerings here are Deep Fried Pork Belly Cubes with a Pepper Jelly Glaze, Pulled Pork, Pork Ribs, Loaded Mac & Cheese, and more. Also the VIP's have their own private restrooms! Beats festival Porta-Pottys.

    Hope you have a great day, food looks fantastic. I'd be happy with the bottom shelf tamales, one of my favorite foods. Most of mine come from a can.

    Bud I know what you're saying about eating Hormel Tamales. I've done that in the past but now keep 4-5 dozen in the freezer vacuum packed 7 to a bag for when the need strikes. Certainly all the mis-shapen ones, the grits I eat with them doesn't care.
