    hi everyone, my name's Don and I've been smoking mostly turkeys and briskets for the past couple of years since my sons bought me a smoker for father's day, I work at a scrap metal yard in the non ferrous department and over the past few months I've been collecting things for my own stainless steel smoker I'll include some pics if anyone has any suggestions please feel free I'm open to new ideas. so far it's a 45 gallon stainless drum with a beer keg bolted on the side for a fire box, it aint' pretty but it should work just fire :)

    Nice to have you join us. Always great to have a new member. Looks like you are on your way to a very nice smoker.

    Want to say that I love your city. Have spent some time there. Vacationed once and then have hit Montreal several times on the way up north. Heading to and from Shefferville and then on up to the Ungave Bay region.

    Keep posting pictures of the construction process and then of course the results of your smokes.

    Welcome DonO from Alberta,
    I am fairly new here as well and I can honestly say that the people on this forum that you are about to meet are some of the nicest people anywhere. They are helpful at anytime, take the time to help you learn and just plain care about the people they are trying to help. If rating a web site were on a scale of 1 to 10 then this place would be 100! Good luck with your smoker and welcome to SMF.... you are in for a treat!!!

    Don,

    Welcome to SMF you'll have a lot of fun here. Be sure and find our "sticky map" so you can put your "pin" on montreal and beef up the canadian presence here.

    I haven't been to the city much but I did breeze through on my way to Mont Tremblant. Do you ski? You're sure living in a nice place that's for sure.

    Good luck smoking and be sure and post pictures of your smoker and all it's new modifications. You'll find plenty to do with it on this forum.

    it just looks burnt on the outside, I think it's the type of wood i smoked with , the meat inside was nice and tender. little trick i learned is to cut up an onion or two and maybe an apple and put those pieces inside the bird, seems to help keep it moist, sure doesn't hurt it any :)
