newbie from the Arctic; hello all.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I've never smoked anything, but planning to set up a plywood type smoker for Arctic Char this summer. finally have a decent boat so I can go fishing this summer.
Catch alot of Trout by winter jigging and summer rod'ing up at the lake. Shoot Caribou for fresh meat. We dry them traditionally; did about 12 last year. sliced up the whole carcass and dry them naturally on racks that are 4' x 12-16' long on chicken wire, we have 4 of them. Dried in the sun and wind in the spring before the bugs come out.

I've been perusing this forum for about 2 months; what a wealth of information. Mouth watering information.

tks. alot

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
