    hello all.  i am a chemist from tennessee...been smoking food for about 10 years.  it started out as something to do while watching sports and drinking beer, but now that i have married and had a kid it is really a weekend passion.  some folks run (even when nobody is chasing them), some go hunting, i smoke food.  i refer to it as chemistry i can eat (the first rule in a lab is "don't lick the spoon").  i started taking Jeff's newsletter a few months ago and replicated his procedures as well as branching out on my own and winging it from time to time.  my current gear is a brinkmann gormet vertical smoker (the green one with the body that lifts off the charcoal pan) but i hope to upgrade soon.  i have come to truly enjoy the 3-2-1 method for ribs (st. louis cut spares), and my current tweaking project is salmon.  i look forward to profitable interactions with everyone on these forums.  Cheers!

    Welcome to SMF. Glad to have you aboard.
  3. Welcome!  You're going to find some great people here, as well as some great recipes and ideas.

    We've got an abundance wonderful hardwoods in Tennessee, and finding good smoking wood is sometimes as easy as taking a little walk.  Although I reside in Florida, I've got a piece of property in TN, just north of Chattanooga.  Lots of hickory, oak, and maple just waiting to be put to good use.

    Keep us apprised of your experiments with salmon.  Always looking to try what others have found successful.
