    Here ya go!
    The batter.
    1 c cornmeal (I used my own white meal, but I think yellow cornmeal is traditional.)
    1 c flour
    1 tsp salt
    3 tsp baking powder
    4 T sugar or less depending on how sweet you like them.
    2 eggs
    Buttermilk or milk
    If you use self rising flour and self rising cornmeal mix leave the baking powder and salt out.
    Mix dry ingredients, add eggs and enough buttermilk to make a thick, but pourable batter. Pour enough of the batter into a tall drinking glass to submerge a hotdog. Then it's as easy as preparing the hotdogs by dusting them with flour or cornstarch, add a stick, dunk them in the batter and fry them in 350 oil until brown. About 3-5 minutes.

    Yep, it's all about the batter consistency.

    Sav A Lot had Fresh Hams on sale for $.99 a pound so I thought I would smoke one at that price.

    I whittled a big slab of fat and cut the hog skin off the shank part. I put it on the Lectric Smoker with nothing added but Salt. I was supposed to meet my son from Ft.Knox this morning and pick up the little Grandaughter. I wanted to take him some but i knew the timing was wrong when started it at 4:30 pm. I foiled it at 11 PM when the temp. was 165° and put it in the stove oven to finish. Temp set at 230° checked it at about 1:30 AM and temp was about 184° Up again at 4 for nature call and temp was 199°. Cut the oven off and left it sitting.
    Woke back up at about 8 and it was in fine shape.
    First Fresh Ham I ever did and it was Superb; maybe better than Boston Butt roast.

    Yeah, it was poor planning to have to get done in the middle of the night, but I wanted to take some to my son today.
    Oh, and I used a lot of hickory sticks for smoke.
