    Thanks for the excellent community.  I've spent a few months lurking, reading threads as needed and planning some projects.  Right now, I smoke very little, but I sure do love eating it. I make my own beer, wine, and cider as well grow my own hops and vegetables.  I'm a DIY person at heart and smoking/curing meats is just the next step in my progress.  

    I only run a Weber kettle right now (my brother has the big offset), but I'm in the process of building an smallish electric smoke house to cold/hot smoke fish, cheese, and sausages.  A group of us regularly butcher 8-10 hogs every fall and make somewhere in the neighborhood of 400lbs of sausage to split up.  Add in the birds, deer, & fish and there's always something that could use a smoke bath.

    This place is an amazing resource for those new to the hobby as well as working through some of the more complex challenges
