    Heya everyone,

    I am Don, I currently live in CO near Denver. I would normally call the hill country of Texas home although I lived in Louisiana a long time as well. I am a student of bbq everywhere I go. I used to work internationally and have come into some type of smoking in almost every country (norway, netherlands, scotland, papua new guinea, saudi arabia, tanzania, the congo, australia, and more). 

    I have a rust bucket that once was a grill with a side smoke box and a recently purchased electric smoker (masterbuild 30"). The woods I tend to use are oak, pecan and mesquite, although I just found a source of alder and apple to try. I tend to use at least a day of marinade for beefs, and some sort of brine for porks. I have created scatch sauces and I look forward to developing that skill better. I have some experience with salt curing, dutch ovens, and things like that. My favorite meats to smoke are bacon, brisket, ribs, fish, and small game.

    I tend to do a cajun/texas style on most anything. Lots of mustard powders, cayenne, coffee grounds, molasses, and such.

    Skills I need to polish: Smoke times/cook times, brine/marinade chemistry

    Hi Don, Just curious if you have any recipes for smoking squirrels or cottontail rabbits?

    Actually, my wife might be able to find some recipes on squirrel. I was thinking quail and small birds. Rabbit I usually save for stews like a ficassee. She is full blown cajun from Pecan island.
