G'Day from Downunder mates!  I'm Marty from Downunder..South Australia..and have only been a member of SMF for about a month.  Thanks for all the good ideas about smoking etc.  The truth of the matter is, I grew up in Pittsburgh with my grandparents cold smoking "kolbassi" in the winter months.  I was only the "go-for" boy when something was needed and never really learned the sausage making process nor the smoking.  Moved to Florida a little later in life and only used a Weber Kettle Grill for smoking the holiday turkeys. Now living in South Australia and slowing learning outdoor cooking from all of you plus already enrolled in the 5 online lessons.  Hope to learn alot more from all of you.

Thanks - Marty

Welcome Marty...  I look forward to some great Aussie Q-view from ya'.

I have a question... If a BBQ grill is called a Barbie there... Would a Smoker be called a Shelia? Probably not.

Thanks to all of you for the warm welcome. I have enjoyed reading and learning from the forums so far. 

Smoke_Chef - It's a Bar-bee here...no comment on the Shelia part.  I made that mistake once, and only once.  It's cold at night here in South Australia and the dog doesn't appreciate company in her dog box.  LOL

Will send pictures when I do my smokes.  Not much of a variety in terms of smokers here in Oz.  At the moment, I'm experimenting with my gas bar-bee.  I did build a plywood cold smoker a few weeks ago and tried my hand at sausage.  They didn't look much like my grandparents sausage but tasted pretty good.  Reading more about cold smoking from the forums.
