    Just discovered this forum,and it looks to be a wealth of information. I have very minimal experience with smoking. I bought a small charcoal smoker from Canadian Tire last year,and used it to smoke a couple of pork loins and ribs. I used mequite and hickory chips from Walmart wrapped in tinfoil to produce the smoke. I smoked them most of the day,cold at first,using a pan of water,then removing it later to let it cook.Turned out really good,but now I want to do more,and try different things. A friend brought in some salmon that he first soaked in a mixtuere of maple syrup,salt and brown sugar.He said he smoked it for about 4 hours.It was great. I do a lot of hunting,and do my own butchering,so I'm hoping to try smoking bear,pig,who knows what else. I want to build a smokehouse as soon as it gets warmer,been looking for info on what to build. I live in Alberta,and about the only wood we have is poplar,so that may be a problem. Anyhow,I'm off to browse the forum,see what I can learn.

    Get out now, leave this place while you still can. If you don't, it will consume you.[​IMG] Your days will be spent pondering what can be smoked next. It is too late for me, I am hooked, but theres still time for you.

    Unless of course your ok with that, in that case, welcome to the forum.

    Welcome to the forum!! If you have trouble finding wood, there are lots of sites that sell it online...I think Jeff's how-to Articles and Links has a few sites under the "Smoking Wood" heading. I know cabela's has several types of smoking wood as well, if you get their catalog or have a store in your area. Good Luck!!
