My name is Dan. I found this site a while back while searching the internet in attempt to advance my meat skills from weekend smoker to a committed passionate meat enthusiast. My family and I recently moved to North Augusta SC from Deland FL and had a newborn girl along with an 8 year old daughter. My smoking experience has been on a char broil propane smoker with hickory, cherry, mesquite, and apple wood chunks and chips and I've had many successful smokes with whole chickens, brisket, butts and beef and ribs. I recently acquired an electric smoker built from a food warmer cabinet. My plan is to advance onto summer sausages, bacon, cured hams and dab into some cold smoking. I will be checking out some ideas to remodel the smoker into exactly what I want and need but I have to figure that part out first and thats where you all come in. Looking forward to some good reads and tasty results.
