Smoking in Canada


Joined Nov 21, 2013
Hi all, my name is Chris and I am from Mallorytown Ontario Canada along the St.Lawrence River. I spend as much time as possible fishing for largemouth and smallmouth bass. I started smoking meat just after trying my hand at jerky in the oven with High Mountain. My wife wasn't too keen on me using "her" new oven so she got me an electric smoker as an Xmas gift. I use it in the garage where I can add the smoke the previous jerky was missing. Now I make my own seasoning and have a different cure. I have also acquired an ECB (which I modified) and a Charbroil offset. These have replaced my old propane BBQ with wood and charcoal (totally worth it!) That Lil ECB has turned out some great food and now I plan to do the mods to my offset to get a truly consistent heat profile in the smoke chamber. I look forward to some great conversation and even greater vittles! Nice to meet y'all!

Welcome from a fellow Canadian, Chris.

This is a great forum with many kind members and lots of good information. I only started smoking last year and have had so much help from the forum.

I think you will like it here.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Not much to post as of yet but I will be glad to share anything I come across. It's going to be more labor intensive as the weather has been dipping below freezing lately so temps can be more of a struggle but possible. Just hope the neighbors don't call the fire dept when they see the smoke rolling from my garage. Had some delicious chicken last night with a hybrid cross between Alabama white sauce and Carolina style sauce. And a 3 lb batch of beef jerky turned out delicious. My QA Technician Jack (2 yo lab) always is eager to help trim, monitor and sample any smoking I do. I will have to upload some pics soon.
