    Hello to all! I am doing as instructed and introducing myself. My name is Daniel, 22, and I am from just outside St. Louis. I am a taxidermist and deer hunter, so you can guess I am surrounded by deer in various edible and non-edible forms :)

    I guess you could say I am just starting out in smoking meats. I've been trying to perfect venison summer sausage for the last couple of years and have too many questions to keep wasting good meat. That's what brings me here because I know the value of forums. When I have a question, I will research something to death and then analysis paralysis sets in :(

    I have Rytek Kutas' book and a Bass Pro propane smoker.

    It's going to take a little while to get used to these forums and learn to use and navigate them well.

    Hey welcome dude ... you need to start your own thread to get everyone's attention, rather than joining this one ...
    We all like to give as many welcomes as we can. [​IMG]

    Dan and Gfitx:

    I want to welcome both of you to SMF. Cruise around and snoop through all the Articles listed in the left hand margine. Some very good information there.

    I know that you both will enjoy your time on the forum. If you have questions, go to the correct thread(there are threads for each kind of smoker, as well as for beef, pork, poultry, fish and the like), and ask away. There will be somebody(probably several somebodies) that respond, in no time.

    Once again nice to have you.

    Thanks for all the welcomes. First off, is there a way to customize display preferences? I want to read a thread from oldest to newest as opposed to newest first.

    Thanks to all!
