Hi all, the name is Ole Gunderson, but most often you'll see me going by the moniker of c44otg. This is my first sojourn into the world of using a smoker. Just built a Ugly Drum Smoker, brought it home on thursday. A friend gave a bunch of 14" - 18" trout that i thought I'd use as my first smoking attempt. Unfortunately, just after I got the smoker started, a thunder and lightning rain storm started and I chickened out and finished the fish on a gas grill that was in a covered area. Here in this part of Utah, Heber City, it isn't unusual at this time of year to have these types of occurrences. I look forward to getting use to my smoker and enjoying the fruits of my labor.
