Hey everyone. I'm Jeff and I need to be on another forum like I need a hole in my head. Last fall I got into making my own goose sausage after a successful early goose hunting season. I needed some new ways to prepare the goose after we brought home 30 lbs of goose breast meat one day. When researching how to make sausage I realized I wanted a smoker and scored a free brinkmann electric smoker from my girlfriends parents. It was late September and the uninsulated smoker I got doesn't do well in cold weather so I've only smoked one time so far. I'm itching to try smoking some other meats now that spring is here. I found this forum while looking at new smokers online. Although I am a total newbie I already realize that I want to upgrade to an insulated digital electric smoker. Hey, who doesn't like new stuff? Other than that I hunt waterfowl a lot in the fall/winterand shoot competitively in the summer. Mostly USPSA pistol and outlaw 3gun. Looking forward to learning on here.
