Thread Starter 

Just wanted to say hello, Paul here from Northern California.  Looking forward to reading and learning all the oldest and newest tricks to smoking meats/fowl/fish.  I can remember as a child going to my grandparent's house and I would head to the smoke shed my grandfather had in the backyard, he always had something hanging in there, be it bacon, ducks homemad sausage or salami (very Italian family!)  I can still smell it!  I do regret not paying more attention or asking questions about his techniques because he sure knew what he was doing!  I do know that he had many different fruit trees and whatever tree he pruned that week was eventually used in the smokehouse.


Keep up the good work everyone. I am learning lots on here, and I will  take notes!

Welcome to SMF!!!!!

I too have fond memories of my grand father and a family friend doing turkey smokes and fish smokes. I wish I had taken notes and asked more questions as well. They would use an old freezer with a bowl of charcole at the bottom. It was amazing and was unfortunately destroyed during a hurricane several years ago..
