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.

Thanks,

gary

I have already found that to be true.  I am eager to learn some of the technical things about smoking meats.   Thanks

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.
