Another Alaskan smoker to join up

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi folks, Just happened to stumble across this site and upon reading all of the different recipes and stuff I decided I had to join and add this forum to all of the other BBQing/grilling/smoking forums I belong to.

I've been using wood pellet grills for about 18 years years now, Traegers, but I've now gone to using a MAK 2 star General and I can't say enough good things about it. It's simply an awsome unit.

I live in Homer, Alaska and work as an x-ray tech at the hospital. When I'm not working I'll be out fishing the rivers when the fish are running or I'll be doing some cooking on my MAK grill. I also love to travel Alaska and I'm wanting to get into doing wild game meats such as moose and caribou. I got the salmon and halibut thing down pretty much but I'm always trying different things. I'm looking forward to using some of the recipes I'm seeing on here.

Welcome to SMF, Glad to have you with us.

This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.

Many of our members have years of experience in smoking meat.  They are more than happy helping Newbies learn the art.

We have members who cure there own Bacon, Hams, Jerky, Snack Sticks, Make Their own Sausage, etc. if you want to learn,
this is the place. 

Don't be afraid to ask questions of them and follow their advice. You won't be sorry, you will be making great Q in no time at all...

Just remember, when curing your own meats follow the instructions included with the cure to the letter, this is not something to experiment with.  

Never use more cure no mater if it is Tender Quick or Cure #1 or Cure #2 than the manufacturer says to use, this can be very dangerous.

Tender Quick and Cure#1 or Cure #2 are not interchangeable, neither Cure #1 interchangeable with Cure #2 or vise versa
