    Welcome to the SMF family Pieter, glad you found us.

    Pieter, you can pretty much put anything in the title. If you leave it blank the forum automatically puts a name in there.

    I put "country smoker" under mine just because I live in the country. (not very creative here. lol )

    No need to be nervous. We all love good Q! Welcome to the group.
  11. I think you mean the "Title" line when you post a new topic, right?

    Just put something that will let everyone know what you're writing about.

    If you're replying to a post, you don't need to put anything even though there is a space for it.

    Don't worry if your English isn't the best. They same is true for quite a few folks here, even though English is their first language.

  12. Thanks cow girl you were the first to welcome me, so i will remember.
    Do you people eat fish or is it strictly red meat. I also love my meat, was a farmer all my live , only recentely changed to the ¿others¿

    Welcome to the group. Like everyone here has said, no need to be nervous. We all have to start somewhere. Plenty of ideas on here for building a smoker or buying one thats commercially made. Looking for something on here, just click on the "Search" at the top of each page and enter what your looking for. In time, you will find the answers your looking for and hopefully post some photos of the meats and fish that you have smoked. Im sure there are many on here that would also like to see some recipes you have from Argentina. I know I would. And no problem on your English. Sometimes my English isnt the best either[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG].

    Welcome to the forum. For the most part, I this a cooler smoke works best for fish. I don't remember the brine recipe that I used (it's been years) but I smoked a lot of trout in my little chief smoker. I should mention that I smoked them more for a snack than a meal.

    Welcome! I love smoked trout!
  20. Welcome Patagonia! I've done a fair amount of salmon from the great lakes and definitely cooler is better. I came across a recipe that involved a cold smoke and lemon juice. The juice obviously instead of cooking with heat, and it allowed long smokes without fear of drying out. I haven't actually tried it, never had the right setup, but i have used lemon and lime juice to "cook" fish. Plenty of great people and advice here to draw from.
