Hello Everyone, I'm Samantha and I was raised here in the good ole' Southwest. I have many hobbies including film, sewing costumes, writing, art, dance and I love to cook! I recently got an electric master-builder from a friend for $30. After a lot of debate I decided to cure and smoke my own bacon for my first time using the smoker and I am uber excited! Any tips or tidbits on curing (or smoking in general) is greatly appreciated!
