Hello from Illinois!

Hi there!  I live in west central Illinois, near St. Louis, MO.  Santa brought me a digital Bradley smoker for Christmas, and I am looking forward to getting started with it.  I have some experience with charcoal and electric smokers, but I am ready to step it up a notch and get into things more in depth.  I plan to make my own venison sausage, snack sticks, Salami, and perhaps bratwurst.  I am sure I will find the education and heIp here I will need along the way, as this looks like a great resource for all things "Smoke".  Thanks for the nice resource..........I look forward to participating and learning as I go!  Happy New Year everyone!
