Hi All

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by axeman, Jan 2, 2010.

  1. I'm a Chef in Matthews, NC - cooking over 20yrs but seriously smoking for about 2.

    Lots of woods near me - got an axe & I go get my own wood.
    I used nature guides to learn tree id and found varieties of hickory, oak, maple along with beech, gum trees, ash & the occasional wild cherry, pecan & walnut.

    Although I may plank with cedar (not smoke) there is a ton of cedar here & I use it to make candle holders around the holidays.

    I have a heavy steel offset smoker that I got at lowes for about 350 bucks complete. I use it 3-4 times a month for brisket, ribs, butts, chicken, prime ribs & tenderloins. not to mention burgers too.

    i came here looking for ideas on how to fine tune my skills

    Hi Axeman. In the 1960's we built a small cabin-smokehouse out of alder logs. As we cut them down we saved all the chips for cold smoking fish.

    Good sized axe chips are a perfect size for smoking once they are air cured for a 1/2 a season or so.

    Lots of helpful stuff in this link for the newbies.
