Hello. I'm not exactly new to smoking. I used to live on the coast and had a home made fish smoker that I made out of a 55 gallon drum. Obviously, this is alot different than making ribs or chicken in a commercial smoker. I'm hoping to get involved in sausage making, and anything else that I can do in the smoker. The sausage making is something that I have been wanting to do for quite a while. I'm in the process of buying a meat grinder, and I hope I can get something going fairly soon. Up here in the mountains of Maine we have long winters, so I think this will be alot of fun. Anyway, any info that anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks,  Mark Tolman
