    Hi, just wanted to introduce myself to the forum. My name is Trey and I am from louisiana. I have been smoking sausage for a few months now. I am interested in learning more tips on sausage making, and I am really looking into making my own bacon and hams. As you can see in my avatar I have my own smokehouse, so I'm just looking to get into meat smoking a little deeper and learning more about cures and things

    Welcome Trey!

    That's a beautiful smokehouse!

    Take a look around at the Wiki and the sausage forum to get started.

    The wiki is brand new though so give that some time.

    cool. I am really looking forward to making some bacon. I just need to find a place that I can buy some belly meat. Is that what most everyone uses?

    thanks guys, I have already come to love this site and I've only been here a few hours. I have already found tons of new recipe ideas I have to try. The bad thing with this is, I just had jaw surgery yesterday and I can't eat solid food for 8 weeks. Yay, what a great time to find this site huh? Anyway, this site is great. 2 thumbs up!!!

    yea I've already got my eye on making bacon and especially these Fatty things. they look legit. I've been smoking the usual stuff for years like pork roast, ribs, etc. I'm interested in the bacon, sausage, fatties, and things like that. this place is awesome
