Hello all,
I just happened to stumble across the forums while surfing the net and I'm glad I found it! My names Dane and I come from Ontario. As for my smoking experience: I started smoking meat in terracotta pots! A fairly odd concept but it worked well. Its basically two terracotta pots placed together(one on top of the other) with a hot plate placed in the bottom as your heat source.
Recently I decided to go up a notch and make my own smoker. Its essentially made out of 2by2s and plywood. I picked up a coleman propane stove from Canadian tire and it fits nicely in the bottom. Heres a picture of my setup:

I'm currently smoking some beef at around 200 degrees. Its been about 20 hours and I think its almost done. I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

Theres many things I want to try smoking such as cheese and fish.

Anyways, I thinks thats about it

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! My first smoke in my new hut went fairly well(really tired from waking up every hour putting wood chips on!). Here are some pictures:

All you need, smoked meat and beer :)

I only had one problem. Its fairly cold here, as you can see from the picture in my first post. This morning when it was very very windy as well so that increased the difficulty of keeping 200 degrees. After about 24 hours I decided to put it in the oven to get the temperature of the beef up to an acceptable level. It didn't seem to ruin the taste, it still melted in your mouth and was very moist.

On the bright side, I think the lower temperature will make my next missions easier, cheese and fish!!!

Thanks again guys,
