another new guy from Washington State

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
My friends call me Hoss
I am very much a newbie and just recently broke in a Brinkman charcol smoker and gave it to a buddy of mine (who will be joining this site I am sure) and I picked up a Cabela's Premium Vertical Smoker propane smoker 48"H x 16"W x 16"D. So far it has worked great for me and I have smoked several salmon (Silvers and Pinks) and a lot of Chicken (NWDave showed me the way) and I smoked my first turkey this Thankgiving. Thank God it turned out great!!!!!!!!!
I grew up in LaConner and my dad and I had a commercial gillneting licence and his dad had a smokehouse where we used to make some increadible smoked salmon when I was a kid.
I am looking forward to leaning a ton off this site and trying out a lot of new recipies!!!!!

Here is my turkey PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

I will post pictures of my salmon later.

I am an avid hunter and fisherman and I am very much looking forward to smoking a bunch of Elk and making my own Pepperoni and summer sausage and most inmportant to smoke some tuna!!!! I fish for tuna and the belly meat is great smoked!!!! NWDave smoked a bunch for me and that is what got me fired up to start this.
Ok I am done for now......... I am awaiting my first 5 day smoking lesson to start reading!!!!!!!

Welcome Hoss from a fellow Washingtonian! Glad to have you hear, these guys are awesome. I myself am an avid fisherman, what a year huh?! The humpy run was CRAZY... Not my favorite fish but they smoke up nice.
