Hi. My name is Linda. I am Canadian but live in Australia. I have 2 smokers, a Hark, which is Australian made and I have been using for about a year and a Bradley, which is Canadian made and have only been using for a couple of months. The Bradleys' have only just become available in Adelaide, where I live. I have mostly been making pepperoni sticks but have recently done nuts and cheese. My next project is curing and smoking a ham. Hopefully for New Year's.

Any tips on curing, there is so much information and methods out there on the net.

Hi Linda and welcome to SMF! We have a number of members here from the Land Down Under but I think that you're our first Lady Aussie or should that be CanAussie???

Anyhoo-Chef Jimmy has got you started in the right direction with the link he provided. Be sure to check out the curing section here at SMF, and by all means-if you have questions, ask. We have knowledgeable folks here to help you.

Enjoy the Smoke!

Weclome from your ex-home, Canada!

I also smoke on a Bradley I hope you enjoy it.

I only started smoking last year and have had a great experience on this forum. I have learned a lot from the posts, I have been inspired by the smokes and have received great advice from the kind members.

I think you'll like it here, Linda.
