Hello, my name is Rich.  I live in Michigan's UP.  I have been processing my own venison for quite some time.  I have now began passing that on to my son.  We enjoy it and toyed around with making summer sausage and jerky in our oven but want to take it up a notch. I recently had an ugly drum smoker made for me,  55 gallon dtum, air valve inlets, a basket to hold 15 pounds of charcoal and wood, 2 racks,  I was told I could do up to 6 pork butts on it.  for me , it's perfect.  I am eager to tart,  and willing to learn.  This is just something else me and my son can do together that can be passed on through the generations.  Glad to be here,  can't wait to learn!!!
