My name is Steve Dallas , I am from Florida but have been living in Davao City Philippines for almost 8 years now. I wanted to buy a smoker but they are hard to find and very expensive so I built one out of a 55 gallon drum; it leaks a tad around the lid but I have no problem controlling the temp and it heats to 285 if I want it to.
When I was a commercial fisherman in Destin Florida, I used to smoke hundreds of pounds of fish a year and also a lot of deer hind quarters & wood ducks so I am not new to smoking....but there is ALWAYS plenty to be learned , I sure ain't a know it all, lol.
I am thinking about trying to export to the states this compressed coconut charcoal , it burns very hot and very long, and has very little ash. This stuff is awesome!
I am smoking in new frontiers here so I think I am going to have a lot of fun....just gotta make sure I don't get fat !
Well, I guess that's about it right now, cya'll around
