Hey there everyone, my name is Andy and I am from southern Ontario. My Father has been making sausage for as long as I can remember, but has never smoked it himself. Now, as he is finally letting me in on the old family recipe, I figured that I would smoke it as well. As a first, I made a fire box, and placed some ribs in it to smoke. After a few hours they were pretty good for the first try. Then I took it one (a few) steps further, I built a smoke house (temperary). On Dec 22. this year, I decided to make some sausage and smoke it. I have not eaten any yet as it is still drying. But I think they look pretty good for a beginner. I am sure that I will be asking alot of questions in the near future. This looks like a great place to learn. By the way, awesome website!!
