Hi everyone!!  I am live in Ontario, Canada and am very curious/interested in smoking my own meats, especially homemade sausages.  I do not own a smoker yet built am looking into getting one in the future or even making my own.  I am eager to learn all and anything about smoking.  Thanks for your time and info.

Pipper we recently built a Barrel Smoker or a UDS as they call them on here (ugly Drum Smoker). I highly recommend that. It was easy to build and it does a fabulous job of cooking meat. We use it both as a smoker and as a grill depending on the grill height and meat. They do a beautiful job of smoking meat.

Welcome, fellow Canadian.


I only started smoking last fall and didn't have much success until I found this forum. There is a ton of great information in the posts and many kind helpful people.

Get a smoker and get smoking!
