newbie from the Congo!

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by congosmoker, Apr 22, 2008.

  1. I just joined the site a while back and really enjoy all the helpful information. I have been smoking meat, mostly chickens and pork shoulders for over a year now. I have Silver smoker that I plan to modify soon with the tips I have found here so that I can take it up another notch. Once that is done I will post some pics along with some q-view a la congolaise.

    Welcome to the forum Congosmoker!! Lots of good info and people hear to give you a hand. You might consider taking Jeff's 5-day smoking course....look on the left near the top. Even though you have done this awhile you will no doubt find some useful info.

    Hey Congo... welcome to SMF! Just wondering, are you a native, or are you with the peace corps or something? I remember 1996-97 when that place was quite hot... we actually had plans to come down to help restore some order, but never did. Can't remember if UN sent others or what.

    Anyhow, welcome again!

    Congo Smoker,
    Welcome aboard! How did you find us? As mentioned is another post, it's especially interesting to have people from other parts of the world to tell us of the types of wood, meats etc. Also pictures of your smokes and area are great. Again, welcome aboard.
  11. Thanks for the welcome everyone. We are american missionaries and were evacuated out in 96 when the war started but returned ater on There is a stong UN presence here.
  12. I forgot to mention that I found you via the smoking meat web site. For now I am using natural lump charcoal - the only kind there is here. I throw in some mango chunks as well. I hope to try more woods in the future. I'll let you know how it turns out.
