    Hello again- J Currier here. I smoke my meats, cheeses, and shellfish up here on the coast of Maine. I have an electric lil chief (perfect for cheeses) and a ECB gormet- no mods yet, but I need to get to that, 2 18" weber kettles, a 22" weber kettle, and a weber gas (for cooking burgers). I am an avid hunter, fisherman, and boater. I dabble in recreational aquacultre in my spare time and manage to raise about 1,500 oysters a year to eat with the family. Married with 2 kids- 2 and 5 years old.

    Thats enough about me- how about you?

  6. I've been smoken for about 20 plus years mostly turkies but have done ribs,venison roasts, jerky and peppers of all kinds. In my arsenal I only(right now) have a 22" weber kettle, 48" propane smoker and a brinkmann(electric) 18 years old. In my somewhat spare time the wife and I rescue stray dogs & cats, saltwater fish from piers and surf(I live 45 mins. from the Chesapeake Bay). Married to my lovely wife for 27 years with one kid 24years old.

    1500 Oysters a year and only 2 kids? LOL

    I could not resist that one.
    Todd here in Sub-Zero Minnesota. Became a member about 2 months ago, but got wiped out by the Server Meltdown we had last week. Married with 2 kids, live on a old 10 acre dairy farm. We raise our own beef, and soon to add some goats, a few piggies and possibly some sheep. In the process of converting an old 1940's fridge into a smoker so anyone with any input on this is welcomed.

    The oysters are all sleeping quietly on the bottom for the winter, almost lost them in an early ice freeze up though- out there on the water the second week of January in my 12' smoker craft breaking a 1/4 inch of ice to try and rescue them! next year I am putting them on the bottom earlier in the year
