Hello, all. m3taldoc here. I'm new to forums, so forgive me if I do something stupid.

The name is because I'm a metallurgist, not because I like 80's Heavy Metal Bands.

I'm relatively new to smoking and sausage making, and have found this site to be chock full of good information. Thanks for that. Before joining, I've smoked a few pork butts, beef brisket, chickens, Italian sausage (homemade and store-bought), and made a batch of snack sticks.

Today, I'll be smoking salt (as gifts), rice, and prepping for kielbasa tomorrow. It's gonna be a busy weekend.

Welcome to the best place for smokers. After devouring mac and cheese after coming off my smoker its my favorite side for all my smoked meats. I just cant eat it anymore unless its smoked lol. So yea I think the answer to your question is YES everything can be smoked period. Choosing the right wood smoke though is the key. I've done apple wood chunks with pork chops. I like some hickory with most meats and used it with mac and cheese yum. I am starting to try some oak and cherry too. Everybody has different tastes and preferences you just have to experiment and try different ones and find what best suits you.
