    My name is Errol, but old friends call me Feral.

    I live 80 km's east of Melbourne the capital city of Victoria in Australia. I have been smoking fish, game and the normal household meats on and off for about 20 years.

    My normal smoker was a permanent wood fired cold smoke house in the past (sadly collapsed now) and have recently purchased a hot smoker that is LP gas powered with a chip tray for the smoke source.

    I have used a range of hardwoods for smoking and now collect fruit tree prunings such as apple, peach and cherry (which I dry and shred) for more exotic smoke. I use an electric planer to make the shavings for the smoker.

    I look forward to learning a lot about the finer arts of smoking from the forum.

     Cheers n beers

    Hi All,

    I am a bit over awed by all the expertise on this site. There are a lot of techniques where I can understand the science behind the methods and that is great. The flavouring combinations are obviously another matter and appear to be the key to a lot of US based smoking. I have only used German Kassler based marinade for pork smoking in the past, so I have a lot to learn here.

    Cheers n Beers
