Hello from Carleton, Michigan

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone. My name is Tom, I live about 45 minutes SW of Detroit. For the last couple of years I've mainly been smoking ribs only. I think I've got those down pretty good. Now I am going to try my hand at sausage making. I'm starting with summer sausage. I would like to get into doing Brats, salami, and those little snack sticks.


I have a horizontal barrel smoker, with an offset fire box. I use hardwood lump charcoal only for fuel, and hickory or mesquite logs for smoke. This new year I am going to attempt my first brisket.


Looking forward to getting to know Y'all.


Have a good one and Merry Christmas.


Tom F (aka Skinny T)

Welcome to the forum.  The search bar at the top of the page should become your best friend.  Have a question or a problem simply search it there.  There are many sausage makers here who can help and guide you through the process.  There are also some nice articles, just search for them.

Welcome to the forum SkinnyT. I'm in Taylor and its nice to see somebody else that is close by. I'm in Carleton every now and then because my mom lives just around the S curve by the firehall. You'll have no problem finding anything and everything that you want to know about smoking on this site. And if not, just ask and someone will be by shortly to answer.
