I am new to the SMF and I decided to join because since I started smoking (2 weeks ago) I decided to go online and find information about smoking salmon. Well I stumbled upon this website which helped me tons. So I figured I join and take all the info and knowledge from all you fine folks. Growing up in the Northwest (OR) where the fishing and hunting is pretty much awesome, the smoking is almost second nature to a lot of people so im surprised it took me this long to actually get into it, or should i say try it for myself. So I am a new to the smoking meats and fish. I am 26 years old, I live in Oregon. I started on a little chief smoking salmon. So far i think i did ok for the first few times but I wanna take it to the next level. I want to start getting good at smoking ribs and meats and of course fish. looking forward to learning some cool smoking skills!
