    Hello to SMF!  I just finished building a "small" home smokehouse for cold smoking.  Though since I live in southwest Louisiana, it will mostly used in our winter time, Jamuary and part of February :).  For instance today, it was 95 with heat index of about 105.  One would need and AC to attempt cold smoking.  I plan on using the A-Maze-N smoke unit to keep the heat down.  I hope to learn how to smoke the way Grandpa did 50 years ago.

    Thanks to all for the ideas I have been reading.

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Would you mind updating your profile to show the other SMF members where you are located?  Might meet some neighbors!

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a Kindle Fire, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
