Hey Guys

I just found this site while doing some research and hope to become a regular here.

I recently built my first smokehouse and pretty much winged it. I think the end result is pretty good and now i need to learn more about smoking/curing meat. So far i have done a small batch of beef jerky and a 30 pound batch of deer sausage that both came out really good. I have also owned a BGE for about 5 years now and enjoy cooking on it a good bit.


Anyway, My name is Chris, i live in south Louisiana. I am a machinist during the week, and i enjoy the great outdoors on the weekends. When i have a good hunt, i enjoy processing my own meat and love to cook.


As soon as i learn how to attach pictures i will start a thread to show my smokehouse build and my first batch of sausage.


thanks in advance for any future advice/ tips

Hey Boodro

Great looking smoker.  How do you regulate your temps??

Well Gary, it's kinda just the way my luck rolls, but when my fire is burning the internal temp of the building is 165 degrees. I have lit this thing 4 times since I built it, so I'm sure that will change. Anyway, did have a concern with leaving this thing unattended and possibly having some flames pop up, so I busted some holes in the pot lid and it seems to make good smoke and keep decent heat
