Long time lurker, first time poster from the high desert of NE California. Got back into the game last year and picked up a masterbuilt gas smoker. After lurking here I did some much useful mods. Just picked up an amazen tube smoker for Xmas which has really expanded my abilities. Did my first cold smoke yesterday which included two types of cheese, a stick of butter and some peppercorns. I followed Mr. T's advice on the cheese and I can't wait to try it out. I used to hunt and fish religiously but with two daughters my game has slowed down a bit although I always have some sort of fish or wild game in the freezer. Anyways enough rambling, I'm here to steal all your guy's amazing knowledge and ideas and drastically improve my own abili:devil:ties . In finishing, this is an awesome site and the amount of helpful information on here is astonishing. I'm glad to be joining such a wonderful community.
