I am Jon. I am from Illinois. I began smoking about 12 years ago. In the beginning I was smoking some ham and turkey for Thanksgiving. I then began smoking pork shoulders for pulled pork and also ribs. I was using a wood smoker. I got tired of fighting to keep the temperature up during our cold weather. I bought a 6 rack electric Bradley smoker 2 years ago. It has the electronic controls/timer. I find myself using it much more now and enjoying smoking more. I am wanting to expand into making my own summer sausage and jerky.
I look forward to learning from everyone and looking at some good recipes.
