just saying hi.
looking to learn more about smoking meats. I've smoked fish for years but lately been wanting to do more. Parents got a 40" MES (gen 1) for me for christmas so now it's time to get it going.

I spend LOTS of time fishing for salmon, steelhead, ling cod, sea bass, and sturgeon. When I'm not fishing I'm hunting.

I live in Washington a little south of Olympia.

things I'm going to learn to smoke

whole chicken (today)
pork butt
wild game sausage, brats
razor clams and oysters
oh and really want to smoke cheese

Welcome to the group Kris!  You'll find that this is a great place to share ideas on smoking, grilling, etc.  There are plenty of 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.

Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything.
