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!
