Hi Everyone

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I stumbled on the site while searching for tips on cottonwood and this is great!  My name is John and I live in southwest Alaska.  I started smoking foods when I moved here about 20 years ago.  I have an upright smokey mountain hot smoker, a tall upright cold smoker and a grill.  My favorite is to make sausage with whatever I have around and then cold or hot smoke for flavor.  I have also smoked lots of fish, game, meats, cheeses and vegetables but I have to admit, my favorite thing to smoke is pork and my favorite wood is apple.  I guess the southern Minnesota roots run deep.


It is almost salmon time here and I am planning on building a small cold-smoke house and put up strips this year.  We have brown bears in the yard every year and I have been hesitant to build a smokehouse.  They have drug my smokers and grills into the woods in the past.  After a battle of wills last fall, I have resolve this year and an electric fence ordered.


I am glad to have found this site and look forward to chatting up the great gift of smoking.
