Hi, my name is Nate and I love learning and talking about different ways of preparing and eating meat.  I am a web developer and I have a friend who is a butcher and I recently created a blog and a forum for him.  Keeping the traditions of old school meat markets while also taking an interest in modern ethical, and sustainable butchery techniques is especially interesting to me.  I look forward to participating in this forum to learn all that I can about the fascinating world of smoking meat. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
