I am from Colorado Springs, Colorado and am surprised there isn't a Smoker's Group for Coloradoans on this site! I'd be willing to start one, if that's permissible. Well the short and sweet is that I lived in Mississippi on the border of Memphis, TN so you can imagine where I was introduced to the difference between "grilling" and BBQ'ing. I grew a great love for low & slow smoking with my off-set cast iron smoker/grill. To date my best meats to cook are chicken thighs to die for and pork spare ribs (specifically with my Mother In-Law's Apple Butter!). Though I can continue to smoke meat this way, I've decided it's time to build a Smoke-House. Living in Colorado where I was born & raised I've gotten back into hunting for the meat. I have a Muzzle-Loader Elk Hunt coming up in September that I pray yields ALOT of great game meat for me to really break in the Smoke House I am building! Your prayers are welcome too, as we are hunting a new unit that is between 9,000-14,000 ft. Elk will likely be higher up as the snow typically won't drive them to lower ground until late October, so we will be doing a lot of hiking, and prayerfully packing out that meat. Thanks for reading about my new adventure! My Smoke-House is designed to be 8'x8'x8', with lots of racks and hanging hooks for additional Hams, Bacon, Sausage & Fish!
