I'm a rookie smoker from Calgary, Alberta. I've been smoking meat, including my own sausage and bacon, for a year now. I got going on my own smoking last year, when I picked up a cheap vertical charcoal water smoker for $20 on kijiji. I really caught the bug after several successful smoking sessions, and I'm looking to move up from here.
I'm in the process of trying to plan a brick smokehouse to build in my backyard - part of this planning includes convincing my wife it's a solid plan. I think I'm starting to win her over, so I'm hoping to start picking people's brains for some of the details of what I'm doing.
I've looked at quite a few posts on the site over the last couple of days, and I can tell there's a lot of knowledge here. I'm happy to have found you guys!
