I live in southern Mississippi I butcher, cure and smoke my own meat. I also raise and sell pigs. I have a homemade smokehouse that I built for cold smoking hams and bacon. I'm a big fan of hickory, maple and apple wood for smoking.I am just starting out butchering for other people. I have a lot of people who always ask to buy my ham and bacon. I do not sell it but I am starting to cure and smoke for others. I have a 8x4 walk in cooler with a 8x5 processing room. I am still in need of equipment, which is what brought me to SMF. I really like the reviews done here. I will also review things as well.
