    Hi everybody,

    Been smoking for about 2 years now up here in the Great Black Swamp and watching these forums for a couple of months. Decided to join this morning.

    I used to work at a meat store, that is what sort of got me into cooking in general. I made a lot of sausage when I worked there, and recently acquired my own equipment to make it.  Bought my first smoker a while back and here are a few things I like to do on the smoker:

    Spare ribs

    Boneless pork loin roast

    Pork shoulder

    Whole chickens

    Beef jerky



    I have two bullet style charcoal smokers, I'll be upgrading next year. Maybe even adding a smokehouse.

    Things I would like to smoke (just haven't done them yet):

    Beef brisket



    Homemade sausage - I'll be doing my first batch tonight!

    Fresh ham

    Prime rib

    Snack sticks


    Brewing grains

    Now lets get to smoking!

    It cooled off quite a bit in the past day or so, yikes. Not looking forward to the impending snow. I worked for my uncle, who had a place for about 5 years, Dan's Finest Meats in Rossford, before selling it to the House of Meats guys. I had a lot of fun working there.  If the kooky are welcome here I believe I will fit in just fine!


    I will check out the E-Course to review and improve the methods behind my madness, thanks for the suggestion!

    A craving for really spicy jerky just hit me, this might be a busy holiday weekend!
