Howdy...from Up North.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

Nick here from Toronto. Glad to finally find a comprehensive forum on smoking...meat that is...not well...you know.

Current setup is a 40 gal oil drum that I flipped, cut, welded and modified into a side-box smoker (like the Char Grill). Its working really well right now, granted the learning curve for this thing is pretty wide and long. That said, through tons of trial and error, this setup has helped me find that BBQ zen of TBS. By no means am I a master, but every outing, I get closer at being consistently consistent (if that makes sense). Still got a lot of learning to do though.

Using good ol' logs and coal for fuel but I've been limited to mainly local woods like maple, oak, applewood and on occasion cherry wood (Hickory, Mesquite, Peach, Almond, etc are pretty much non existent up here...in log form that is). So any friendly Americans that feel like shipping some of their woods here please do PM me.

Anyhow, glad to meet yall. Look forward to posting.

Hia Nick, welcome to SMF from a Michigander. I am lucky in that my bro-in-law's an Alabaman and goes back there often, brings plenty of hickory up with him.

Custom rigs are cool... even my ECB has soo many mods it's close to one LOL!

Enjoy your time here!

Nick: welcome aboard, glad to have ya! Sounds like a neat rig, you also have access to some of the best woods used for smokin! Maple and applewood are two excellent woods for pork or anything else for that matter and oak is what charcoal is made from so you have the main ingredient there!

Good luck with future smokes and be sure to share some q-view with us!
