Can't help but think Twisted Sister when I see SMF....should give an idea of my age lol.
From Indiana and I hunt, fish, garden, make my own sausages, and currently have only smoked hot peppers on a charcoal grill. I am a live off the land kind of guy and love using all of earths bounty. I want to learn how to smoke all kinds of meat to get some awesome flavors going on.
I have spent many years in the restaurant business as a cook and in management. I know my way around a kitchen, but am pretty lost around a smoker.
My fish of choice is the walleye and I pursue it year round. Walleye, bluegills, and perch are the only fish in my freezer and I have a freezer just for my fish :)
My drug of choice is hot peppers. Trinidad scorpion, ghost pepper (Bhut Jolokia) and the scotch bonnet are my favorites at this point in time.
I can cook up a storm on a charcoal grill but really think I would have trouble smoking on one.
Glad I found this place!!!
