It was suggested that I introduce myself since I am brand new to the forum so here goes.
My name's Ben and I live on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. I currently raise my own pigs, goats, rabbits and chickens for meat, but have not gotten into the smoking and curing of them myself quite yet. I do smoke quite a bit of salmon throughout the summer but want to expand more into sausage and hams as well. I have plans to build myself a hybrid cold/hot smoker this summer and possibly a walk in cooler for aging meat.
I'm sure I'll be getting to know quite a few of you throughout the coming months. Thanks in advance for all of the help and answers to newbie questions I'll most likely have.
