Welcome aboard from a Southeastern PA resident...You'll have ideas out the wazoo after reading this site. Although, when you mention fish, opening day is just around the corner!!! Did my first fresh smoked trout last year. It was awesome!

Anyway, settle in and get reading!!

Thanks to all you good folks for welcoming me aboard. I have been smokin' on electric smokers for about 25 yrs. now (mostly fish) and I'm on my 3rd one. I have a few basic recipes I use because they are "tried and true" and they're probably nothing any of you hasn't seen, done, tried, etc. etc. I don't smoke a lot of meats...maybe some Venison once in awhile or some sausages because I'm really not impressed with the way electric smokers work on Gamemeat. I have the plans and I want to build a larger smoker from an old (steel lined) refrigerator. I plan on using gas vs electric for the heat source as I have researched some and concluded that gas is easier to control temperature with and for the simple fact that as the power goes out in the rural area I live in I know I'll be able to continue my smoking process without interruption. I want to start doing a lot more "cold smoking" and be able to do more volume as well. Any ideas, suggestions, or info in general would be greatly appreciated. I also have some good sausage recipes I'll get around to sharing as well. Thank you all again......SMB
