Uncial Fred inspired. My uncial use to make this killer sausage. He did his own butchering and then would smoke it 4x at 6 hours each time. When My aunt use to cook it. The think brown paste would come out of it. It was a combination of the brown sugar and sassafras. I log on the internet and was looking of a smoke generator and then I found the smoke daddy. Didn't want to do it small so I got there biggest one they had. I though less loading time. They day my smoker came in I ran to lowes and bought me some lumber and started to build this. Today was my first of many times using it. I smoked some pork ribs and some sea salt. The salt I will smoke a lot more times it's still white and I seen in the book I got they smoked it till it was almost black. I"m going to be trying all kids of wood but still waiting to get my hands on some sassafras wood.
