noob to the forum

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have been smoking for years, but have much to learn.  I usually smoke 30-50 pounds at a time.  I am reluctant to change my pork shoulder, baby backs, bone-in-skin-on chicken, or bratwurst recipes.  A David Klose log burner is used for smoking.


My meat sticks, on the other hand, lack the snap I desire.  They have much room for improvement to match the great butcher's of WI and MN.


I have perfected an Italian Sausage recipe that suits my goals of strong pepper and fennel components with low fat content.


Last summer I grew Carolina Reapers, 7 Pod, and Scorpion peppers, so you know I like a good burn.  


I look forward to picking your brains dry,  Dan

Thanks.  It already feels like a friendly group.  Other forums expect one to have read EVERY post in the history of the forum before asking a question.  I certainly will use the search bar.  I will probably lurk for a while as I do my research.
