Howdy from Wyoming

    I've been reading a lot on here for the last year and thought I'd finally post up and say hello.  I'm from Wyoming for now but we will see where things fall in a year.  I live to hunt and fish and have always liked to cook the meat I harvest but I just gained access to a Masterbuilt 7 in 1 smoker.  In the last couple of months I have smoked a duck, salmon, and goose pastrami, all using it as a charcoal smoker with apple wood.  Right now I have another salmon on there, plus two racks of ribs.  Because of the poor weather we are experiencing right now, I'm trying it out as a propane smoker for the first time.  We'll see how that goes.  The 7 in 1 may not be the best smoker out there, but it has done well and is like a gateway drug.  Now I'm trying to figure out how to build my own smokers, one small enough to do 1 duck or 2 fatties at a time, and then one big enough to do 6 to 10 racks of ribs at a time.  

    I am using apple wood for the simple reason that my neighbor had an apple tree that didn't winter so well and now I have access to a huge supply of wood.  I don't know if different trees produce different smoke, but this stuff is so intoxicating while it's smoking that I think they need to make a woman's perfume out of it.  She could be the ugliest gal ever but smelling like this I'd be chasing her like crazy.

    As far as a small build it yourself smoker look into a mini-WSM! They are great little smokers and fun to put together.

    The salmon stuck a little on the back side, which in turn made the tongs dig in on this side, otherwise it would look as good as it tastes.  Now to pull the ribs off in 2 to 3 hours.

    Forget the tong mark, that's a very tasty looking piece of salmon! Nice job-can't wait to see the ribs!

    I forgot pictures of the ribs. Everyone else thought they were great but I wasn't near as impressed. The meat itself seemed odd. I've never had to trim so much fat off ribs before and even still they seemed overly fatty.
