    I now live in Carleton place Ontario.
    New to the recreational smoking game.
    My Smoking experience was gained from helping my Weir fisherman Dad in Nova Scotia, to prepare a thousand Herring or Mackerel per batch to smoke in his 10 ft by 14ft wide wooden smoke shack .
    His is an old school style, brined then cold smoked over long hours using maple or birch sawdust dried in the sun by the truck load. he can't make it fast enough!
    it flys out the door as fast as he can smoke it.
    I have hung a bunch of different foods in there to smoke, the best so far was gouda cheese from that Damn Dutchman cheese factory in economy Nova Scotia, it was amazingm, I tried Speckled brook trout didn't turn out as good as I was expecting though probably my prep wasn't correct method.
    Now that I am posted here I have been getting my smoke fix with smoke box on grill and tin foil sachets over charcoal grill.
    Getting parts together to make my own Side burner Smoker/Grill found lots of great tutorials on the site lurking so decided time to join.

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "SMF User Guidelines" .....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per TulsaJeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
