Hello form the Northwest

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by dcpac, Nov 5, 2011.

  1. Hello I just found the forum, wow so much information I wish I would have found this forum a few years ago.

    I have been smoking using my Weber Smoky Mountain for a about 6 years.  I raise and butcher my own pigs, chicken and goats. I have mainly smoke pork and salmon. I have a smoke daddy that I use with a hot plate that is digitally controlled by a thermostat to do all my cold smoking. I am looking forward to learning from all of you and I might even be able contribute.

    Hey neighbor.  There's a couple of us hiding up here in Whatcom County. And then there's a couple down in Snohomish, then there's Joe out on Whidbey, why, I guess you're just plain surrounded.  Yep, this is a friendly place with a lot of great ideas and we're looking forward to your ideas as well.

    3 Days?? Aw Pishtaw.  Rain ain't nothin'.  I've learned to take steps to insure that I can smoke any darn day I want.  I've created a shelter about 22 feet long and 16 feet wide, built out of 3/4" conduit and heavy tarps with a decent slope.  It's sheltered from the winds.  Roof Ends are also anchored to building structure.  Vertical poles are anchored in concrete blocks.  When winter comes, I add 4x4's reaching from the deck to the peaks to handle the snow.  One of these years I might even add a real roof over the area, but.....I got a lot of things doing.....It's tough being retired.....too many distractions.  This works just fine.  When I go out on the road with my travel trailer, my WSM goes with me, of course.  Through up a 10x10 canopy with extra sections of tarp to wind block the sides, hey we're cooking now.  When I was on the job, we called these hooches.  When I was a member of Uncle Sam's Camping Program (deployed to the field, we called these shelters).  Adaptation is the name of the game.

    Now, what was your question?  [​IMG]
