Hello everyone. Been visiting these pages for years to help guide me toward smoking sausages originally and then moving on to other treats with my first Brisket with a buddy being the latest. I never knew beef could taste so good and I am sure it will get better with practice. I am building a smoker and going to sort out some stuff and ask questions over in that forum but thought I better check in here and say hello first. Also might try a fresh venison shoulder this weekend after I weight what I need for sausage. I scored some cool stuff for a smoker at a thrift sale a few minutes ago, A $3000 lab oven(4" an 4" opening) that has some goodies for an electric smoker. I will post over there soon but thanks for all I have already learned. I am the local expert among my friends because of your knowledge.
