Hello from New Zealand

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

            Name's Travis and I'm from Rotorua, New Zealand.  I have a 6 burner hooded bbg (grill), an

old Webber and I am currently turning a 1950's fridge into a smoker.I haven't done a lot of smoking so

I need a bit of advice and opinions on the build so I will post photos and questions later.


Look forward to sharing ideas with the knowledgeable bunch you all are! :) 


Thanks in advance.

Welcome from the land of 10,000 lakes of Minnsosta. Glad you are here with us....As a child my grand dad had a refrigerator smoker at his house on the lake. He smoked fish all the time and it was awesome.  They work super good as a smoker. Insulated well too.


We are happy you joined our group..........grilling_smilie.gif

I've been to your home town.  I did a semester in NZ while I was an undergrad and I spent a few days in Rotorua.  I went fishing on Lake Rotorua and on Rerewhakaaitu while I was there.  We caught some great rainbows on Rotorua, but nothing on Rere.  That's a pretty awesome place.  Someday maybe I'll make it back down there.


Anyway, as one novice to another, this is the most helpful site I've ever found on a topic on the internet by far.  It would have taken me 10 years to learn what I've picked up in a few months here.
