Hi everyone, my name is Jessi, I live in Prince Rupert, BC. On the Northwest coast just south of the Alaskan Panhandle.

If I had to guess my elevation, maybe a couple hundred feet? I can see the ocean from my house at any rate. Climate is very wet, rainy, and temperate - mild winters, cool summers.

I am using a Big Chief and have virtually no smoking experience at this point. I am hoping to use my smoker to make jerkies, smoke salmon (we have A LOT of salmon around here) and flavor game meat and eggs.

The main meat I will be working with will be deer, moose, quail, grouse, quail eggs, salmon, occasionally home-grown beef and chicken, and occasionally wild duck and goose.

I raise quail as a hobby so always have lots of them hanging around, and lots of eggs.

I am hoping to look into recipes that are lower sodium if possible, and would be interested in learning how to make low-fat pepperoni as well. I really like the peperoni that my parents get made with their pastured beef but I would like to know how much fat and salt is going into it. I'm trying to find healthier snacks than store-bought.

I enjoy hunting and fishing as well.
Welcome Jess! I know there are a few other folks on here that use the Cheif. You should get some more replies to your other post soon I would bet and there are quite a few western canadians that are members as well. Hope your first smoke goes well today. Timber.
Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything.
