Milkman from PA

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm the milkman from PA. I'm a dairy farmer and a deer hunter. I hunt my own farmland and butcher deer myself. I also raise my own dairy beef but I get a butcher to cut steaks and grind burger.

I'm from Lebanon, PA. That's west of Philly 2 hours drive, 45 minutes east of Harrisburg. We ship our milk to Land O Lakes, used to ship to Hershey chocolate (15 minute drive) until they decided they needed a middle man to screw us dairymen. PDT_Armataz_01_19.gif

I'm in the process of building a 55 gallon drum smoker. I have a fire lit right now trying to burn paint off the inside. I plan to keep it simple and not spend more than 50 bucks. Got the drum for free, and hope to put in a propane burner. I need to find some scrap (not hard to find on a farm!) to make the smoke generator. I plan to use maybe charcoal with soaked wood chips.

I have read books and am currently taking the 5 day course but food poisoning is a concern for me. This hobby will stop immediately if someone gets sick with my food. When I'm ready to smoke I may post what I'm doing and get your input.

Thanks for the welcome!!!
