All American 930 ordered and should be here Tuesday.  Decided on the All American because I will be using a gas / propane burner and storage concerns are not an issue for my set up.  Figured bigger is better and if I need a smaller one at a later date, I would add a 21-23 qt presto to the mix.  Let the canning begin!!!!! 

Thanks for all the responses.   :tup:

Jrebel, I'm sure you know it's best to keep the propane down around medium/low for pressure canning.  Not a good idea to fire up the crab cooker on high, which could damage the pot.  Also, I found working inside a garage keeps the wind from being a factor, cooling down the vessel.  Enjoy.   :tup:

Thanks for the tips.  This will be my first time pressure canning anything.  I will be doing quite a bit of reading over the next few weeks in preparation for canning deer and moose.

Alaska Fairbanks Extension has a great youtube channel.  Tons of great videos for the sportsman.  Here's one of them on the basics of pressure canning, featuring the All American pressure canner.

If you haven't already bought it, this little kit is a very useful thing to have:

Canned 14 quarts of deer meat last night.  I did the raw pack method with only adding 1/2 tsp of salt.  Just opened the first jar tonight to taste it and it is amazing.  Cannot believe this is the first time I have ever been exposed to canned venison.  Everyone should give this a try......pot roast in a can.   :tup: :tup: :tup: :tup:

here is a video I made using my ALL AMERICAN which I love.  Funny thing is I have never done venison.  Some of my buddies have and told me it's awesome too so I need to do that asap and try it out.

I felt the same way. Warm it up in a pan and serve with noodles, rice, potatoes,??? Tastes like you've been cooking all day!

I like my presto, but mainly because I have a flat top stove, and it's one of the few safe for my stove. Other heavier scanners can crack the glass.
