Welcome, feel free to share you knowledge with the rest of us. Smoking meat is like fishing, the ones who have been doing it for a long time, share what they know, those who are starting out, ask questions, and soak up knowledge.
grew up ona farm, grandparents, we had some stock, a little of every thing, mostly just freezer fillen for the fammilys, but we did have a extended family reunion each year and cooked up several hogs, chickens and some beef, and occationaly a lamb or 2, now i gotta buy my meat , hope that changes soon and can get a little farm bought up for me and the dots.
Sounds like a plan. Smokebuzz! I have ten very private acres in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Have started a bit of a farm. Chickens are here and next year I will start keeping pigs. Will just buy feeders for now. Turkeys and a few sheep will follow. Then if I am still lacking there is always the super hunting and fishing right in my backyard!
In a few years when I retire, again, I will have plenty to do. Gardening is a big part of this thing too but was cut short on that this year. So by all means go for the farm and keep us posted. I already have several beer can chickens walking and squawking!
