This is my first post as recommended, My name is Rodney, a 55 year old adolescent from S.E. Iowa down on the mighty Mississippi River. I have never smoked anything! I bought a Cajun Injector smoker at the local farm store a while back,thought I needed something else to do as we can't ride our motorcycles during the winter. I did season it as recommended with hickory chips, bought a turkey and a pork loin. I was going to fry the turkey and smoke the loin but unfortunately the weather was rainy for Thanksgiving and I had to postpone which really was a blessing as I knew nothing about smoking meat other than I like to eat it. Anyway enter my job which takes me to China and Germany frequently, I am engineering director for a German company making fittings for tempered glass installations. I left for Guangzhou China right after Thanksgiving for 3 weeks and fortunately found this forum but was unable to join at the time I think because it doesn't like a Chinese foreign IP address. Now that I have returned to the states I was able to join up and say hello. So while in China I spent my free time reading this forum, I must have been the only one on the planet that did not know about the MES smoker! Hopefully the Cajun Injector will do the job too. I was lucky enough to to find Todd and his AMPS on the forum, I was wondering how you keep the smoke going, Todd got me all set up with the AMPS several types of pellets and the remote thermometer setup. Had a little trouble with paying him through Paypal coming from China but he took care of that too. Great communicator. So now back to the turkey which now I think I will smoke too and get another one for frying as well as that pork loin for Chrismas dinner. I have all the stuff and plenty of info thanks to y'all.
