Hey from Oregon

  1. I am waiting on my propane smoker to arrive and found this forum and think I will like it.

    I have smoked salmon for years and basically wore out my Big Chief and started looking for an alternative.  Decided to go with a

    propane smoker.  Just getting my feet wet and look forward to creating some decent eating meat.  I do want to continue to smoke salmon as I catch my share.  I had trouble having consistent results and hope the more control I can have with propane will help. 

    Not sure what my first smoke will be but thinking about a rack of ribs.  I usually smoke exclusively with alder but will be trying to add some variety to that.

    I read some reviews from here on mods to smokers that seemed good and will be trying to get the most out of mine.

    Welcome to the forums Gary!  Glad you've joined our group.  You'll find there are lots of friendly and knowledgeable folks here who genuinely enjoy helping one another.  Looking forward to your input, and just ask when you need anything...someone here will surely have the answer.

  6. I have already found that to be true.  I am eager to learn some of the technical things about smoking meats.   Thanks
  7. Thank you, I saw your avatar and also that you live in Bend.  I have smoked a lot of fish and want to learn the meat side.  Wore out my Big

    Chief, did some research and am hoping to continue to smoke the salmon I catch.  The smoker I am getting should be a good start in doing

    ribs and briskets and other cuts.  I am a union carpenter, now in supervision, might someday move to Central Oregon.
