Hello all! Don here. I have had my home on 6 acres for 4 years now and I planted the Food Plots and have great Deer Hunting and I live 20 Minutes from either Lake Huron, the St. Clair River or Lake St. Clair... So I fish all the time too! I got into making Maple Syrup and I have Honey Bees for Honey too. I also make Mead (Honey Wine). One thing I always wanted to do when I got my own house was build a smoker...so now I'm gonna! I'm a bit confused though... I had an electric smoker before and smoked fish with a Brine. Always wanted to do beef or Venison or a Turkey but never did. I've been reading a bit about building a smoke house but are they just for cold smoking? Also what's the difference between Cold Smoking and Hot smoking? I'm sure after I post this I will be reading the answers here but it's my intro and I am gonna ask! I had what I thought was cold smoked Salmon once... I think he called it Lox... Well it was tastey but seriously 8 hours later you'd thought I took 5 laxitives and I asked him if he was sure it wasn't called LAX lol! So can I build a Smoke House to Smoke like I did in the Electric SMoker I had for the fish? Thanks my basic into and questions and I think I'm really gonna like it here!
