Newby from South Africa

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi all SMF members,
I am a complete beginner - meat smoking is not that popular down here, but with all the fantastic info on this forum one can't go wrong!
I've used a stainless steel s/pool filter, which I hope I can use as bbq & smoker.
I have arranged series of pullys & s/steel wire to lower or lift the fire grate by turning & locking at the required height. will be experimenting this week end!

Cheers !

Welcome Saffer. Ditto here on the pics. I want to see some wild game. Need pulleys when lowering in a water buffalo hind quarter?

Welcome, the information on this site is great, you should be able to make some great smoked meats. smile.gif

If I understand correctly, you're converting a stainless steel sand filter into a smoker? Sounds like your going to put some time into it, take some pictures and post them once it's done.

Welcome to SMF glad you joined us. You'll find lots of info here and some pretty darn good recipes as well. I would suggest signing up for Jeff's 5 Day Ecourse as well it has some great info and its free. Your smoker plan sounds interesting and I look forward to some pics and info as to how it works. Have fun and happy smoking

welcome to the SMF. Wow, the world gets small every day!!! A popular saying around here "The only stupid question is the one not asked." Need help, do a search. If you can't find the answer, ask away and you will get more answers than you ever imagined.
