  1. I found this forum when I started to look at new ideas for a smoker.  I have finally burnt out the bottom of the fire box on my old smoker and decided to look for plans for a new one.  The more I looked the more I read the different forums. 

    I got into making sausage a couple of years ago when I asked for a sausage stuffer for Christmas.  It has been all downhill since then. Breakfast sausage and chorizo became a staple in the freezer.  I can't got back to store bought anymore.  I ventured into bacon and Canadian bacon next.  I'll never buy either at the store again. 

    Now I am looking to build a smoke house and have asked for the northern tools burner for Christmas.  I have rehabbed houses in the past so I have pretty decent carpentry skills.  Since I am a teacher I am coming up on some time off for the holidays and look forward to starting the build.

    Welcome Slikster! Many people have build smokehouses on here so go check them out in the Smoker Build section. We used JckDanls07's a few months back for the first time at the South Florida gathering. It worked great once dialed in. We made 100lbs of snack sticks

    Alot of great people on this forum so feel free to chat, post questions and make sure you post some Qview of that sausage and bacon you make :)
