Upper Michigan
New to smoking meat, but I sure did a lot of it this last summer. I live in Upper Michigan, and recently acquired an Oklahoma Joe smoker. It was all I could afford, and I did some research for modifications on it. Have it all modified and it
does a decent job. Looking to upgrade in the near future though. I've enjoyed pork butts, ribs, whole. Chickens, and making my own bacon. Everything has been a learning experience, but delicious! I'm looking forward to sharing my experiences with everyone and learning from other people on this forum. Here are some pics of a two pork butts and some bacon I did. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
