  1. Greetings everyone.  My name is Pat and I live near Annapolis MD.  I have been cooking all my life, whatever sounds good and add my own twists.  I started smoking meats about 25 years ago when in abundance of fish and ducks.  Did a lot of experimenting but absolutely love it.  I currently have a Masterbuilt propane smoker.  While using the smoker for processing wild game was always my mainstay I do like to pop other meats in for a true smoked flavor - can't beat it :)

    I happened across this site while looking up something else and have been perusing for over an hour now.  Figured I may as well join up if I'm this interested!  Lots of info here and sharing of experience, a great way to hear about and try new things.
  2. Still perusing site and realized folks love the pics.  Trying to insert my project this eve, about 5 lbs of venison I am about to smoke.  Used electric meat cutter to keep uniform sizes so it all gets done at the same time.  Put it in homemade marinade for 24 hours and this pic is of it draining and on it's way to the smoker. I'll have to remember to take post pics before vacuum sealing... I like to break it down and take when we get outdoors - no better initiative to take more game than eating some while in the woods!

    Welcome! Glad you decided to join us. This place is great. 
  9. So, forgot to post a bit ago as I put meat in smoker.  Venison views below with explanations.  I racked it draped, letting all meat have exposure to air for smoke.  Lets me use half the rack space and since I only have 4 racks it helps out a bunch.  Took basically just over 2 racks versus about 5 which I am shy...  Ignore the Sam Adams, that was for seasoning me, not the venison.
