Greetings everyone. Hello from Idaho. Smoking meats is part of my interests, part of a larger interest in food preservation of all types and kinds. Curing meats, poultry and fish, as well as making sausage is my hobby. Been collection recipes most of my adult life, as well as collecting the wisdom, methods and accounts of successes and failures of practitioners of all types. I look forward to learning from the assembled membership! Idahobeekeeper - oh yes, I also keep bees. Honey makes a great sweetener for cures.
