Just signed up here, been lurking for awhile, and have found some great info, so I figured I would join up. My name is Trav, I guess you could say I'm fairly new to smoking meats, I've done jerky and sausage before, but I'm now looking to do more. I have a home made smoker, which is 6' x 6' x 7'. I made it this big so I can do large batches of sausage and jerky, and cause the guy I learned from had one similar in size. I also recently purchased a grinder (no. 32) and a meat mixer to make things easier for myself. Anyways, off to surf some more, so a big HELLO to everyone here, and I look forward to learning more from everyone here. Peace. BTW... A really great site you've got going here, keep up the good work!!!
