Hi all -
New SMF member here from the great prairie lands of North Dakota. Have made my own venison sausage from commercial spice mixes many times and got the urge to start smoking it. Asked my family for a smoker as a Father's Day gift, and my first batch of bratwurst is smoking in my new SMF 40 as I type. I haven't even tasted it yet and already I'm hooked! Lurked on the forum for a few weeks reading many very informative posts, and now I'm going to start asking questions of all you seasoned smokers!
