I'm a new smoker, sausage maker, and hopefully all round novice with a lot of interest and energy. I live in Highland, il. And I recently retired as a R/R worker. I enjoy running and bicycling and have been a competitor for 25+ years. I have a plan to convert a refrigerator into a smoker, dryer, curing chamber. I will attach a Masterbuilt cold smoker to this refrigerator and hopefully with enough pipe extension between the two, I will create cold smoke. I have a lot of ideas and am willing to learn from anyone and everyone.
