G,day guys

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi, names Tony and live just north of Auckland, New Zealand. Fascinating forum you guys have here.
The extent of my smoking is mostly fish but where we live (we manage a dairy farm) there is an abundance of Fallow Deer, so the venison is plentiful.

I have a small stainless steel fish smoker, use Manuka (Tea tree) sawdust and sit the smoker over a gas ring or light a small fire under it.
A friend has given me an ex airforce artillary shell container. Its made of 1/4 inch thick aluminium and is roughly 2 foot 6 inches high by 16 inches wide. At the moment it is completely air tight but i will be drilling 6 holes in the lid so i can put in hooks to hold the meat/fish while it smokes.It will be a very hot smoke so I guess there will be a bit of "trial and error" until I get it right.

Anyways, I,m 51, married with kids and like to think I have a good sense of humour.
Love my sport, Rugby, Rugby League, Fishing etc .

Glad to meet you all.

Hia Kiwi, Welcome to SMF! There'a another Aussie round here, Urban Griller. He was explaining that no one really BBQ'a/smokes much at all down there- it's mostly grilling over gas.

I call BBQ the one worthwhile American contribution to the culinary arts, and it appears to be true from all the other world viewpoints one sees on the Net.

Enjoy it here, there's many a pitmaster ready, willing and able to help!

G'day to you, Tony!

Welcome! Happy you found us!

I agree with the others that we are fascinated by your smoking equipment.

A dear friend of mine lives in Auckland and has been in NZ for almost ten years so I have learned a lot of your locale. She spent most of her first years on the South Island in Dunedin and will soon be headed here.

So, smoke on and enjoy your time here with the SMF Family!
