    I'm not new to smoking but I am new to this forum. I have had a Treager pellet grill for four years now and built a fridge smoker last year for smoking sausage. I decided to convert my fridge to a PID controlled one and that turned into building a new one all together.(of course)

    So, I found this site and like the fridge and freezer section so much that I decided to join so I could share my build as I have got some great ideas from there.

    First off welcome to SMF. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.

    Welcome To Your New Addiction

    Thanks guys! I have pretty much only looked at the fridge/freezer section as that is my current project, but since I signed up I see that there is a lot of sections that look interesting to me so I will be reading a lot here. Nice site!

    Just to give a little background, I have made quite a bit of summer sausage, pepper sticks, cheese, and some bacon, not to mention the normal smoking on the Treager.

    I'm always looking for a better way and my last batch of bacon a couple of weeks ago finally got my wifes approval.

    I raise my own beef, pork, and lamb, and I have a water cannon on order from Kirby to replace my 5lb Norhtern Tool vertical stuffer.

    [​IMG]  to SMF you will like it here I'm sure. Lots of great folks here willing to help. If you already haven't check out the 5 day e-course on smoking. http://www.smoking-meat.com/smoking-basics-ecourse.html. It's a good read even if you are not new to smoking.

    COOL I love checking out all the builds

    Thank you everyone for the very friendly welcome. I worked on my cold smoke generator today and had to make a slight change to it.

    It worked well for a little bit but then died down. I only get a one day weekend, and that's today so I really didn't have a lot of time to mess with it or take pics.

    I have a long weekend next weekend so I will start a thread in the fridge/freezer smokers on my build.

    There is a ton of really good info here on what I'm doing and that is my main reason for joining, so I can give back on what I learned from this site as a lurker.
