Hello everyone....I'm new here!

  1. Just a few tidbits about me. I live in Western Kentucky and enjoy some of the best hunting, fishing, camping that the U.S. has to offer, in the Land-Between- the Lakes. I fish and camp with a great bunch of guys every Tuesday night of the year. Regardless of the weather, or temperatures or time of year, we fish and camp every tuesday. We have a great time of fishing and camping and grilling meats on a webber grill and have recently started looking into smoking meats! I have smoked some deer jerky and a few types of meat, but I am still just a newby to the art of smoking meats. We target Monster Catfish, and have caught several nice ones this year. I have personally caught a 43 lb Flathead Catfish, A 47 lb Bluecat and a really nice 67 lb Flathead. All of them are caught on rod & reel and all of them are released after weighing and pictures taken. We just get together to have a good time and when we catch a fish, that just makes it more fun. So I just joined this forum, to see what I can learn about smoking meats and hopefully to make some new friends who enjoy my love of the outdoors and the great sport that it offers. Thanks!

    Would love to see pics of those flatheads. I smoked some not long ago using a brine, they turned out great.
