    Hi everyone,

    i have been reading books on smoking for years and had fond memories of smoked mullet a oily fish mostly used for bait or for cats, but when smoked was just awesome. I have moved from using a smoking box in my hooded bbq, to a meco water smoker and now have started converting an old fridge, but i may ditch that and build a brick smoker?

    I'm down in brisbane queensland australia and hope to be able to cure and smoke a ham for xmas this year. I recently bought a shop leg of ham and when i started to slice it saline solution squirted across the floor. Wow was i dissapointed.

    I would love to be able to show people how much fun it can be and the satisfaction you get from entertaining friends and family with lovely smoked food.

    keep smok'in
