Dont believe I introduced myself here. Been lurking around getting some opionions and checking out the forums. I'm retired and live in Salem NE Ohio. Been smoking off and on for quite a few years. Got into sausage,jerky and sticks mostly. My neighbor started me back at it recently. Have a brinkman and a larger grill type. My neighbor has a refrig and a small smoker not sure who made it. We do a lot of venison and steelhead together. Decided Im going to buy a new smoker and add a pid for more control on sausage and other meats. Since looking at this site and a couple others I realize how little Ive been into and there is a lot to learn. Very nice site keep up the good work! Im sure Im going to learn a lot.
