  1. Hi all

    I am Jon and joined a few days ago. I have been cooking dutch oven for several years now and do so in hunt camps. Smoking came about a few months ago when my wife and I went hunting in Texas. My wife started smelling bar b que as soon as we enter Texas. We were taken to a bar b que place after church, and as they say,"the rest is history". We were in Oklahoma last week where my niece made smoked ribs for us, and all I hear now is we need to find more bar b que. I have been trying and somewhat successful with an old refrigerator and electric burner, but I tried to slow cook some ribs like my niece and was told they were no good. I do not take defeat well at all, so I got on the Internet and by the grace of God found Jeff's sight. It has already been fun and I haven't smoked anything. Jeff is one of the greatest host's I have ever met. I have now been given permission to buy what ever smoker I want. Also get to buy a small one for camp. I make a lot of sausage, and we catch a lot of fish, so we are looking for a large horizontal for the house and a small smoker to take with us when we go to hunt camp.We outfit for elk camps so we need a smoker to pack with us in the woods.Any advise would be greatly appreciated. We are really excited about being part of this group and look forward to the future.

  4. Welcome to SMF. Sure wouldn't mind seeing a couple of your dutch oven recipes.
  5. As a starter smoker you can't go wrong with an mes 40. SAMs club sells them for $300. Also pick up an amnps from Todd and you can be all set for basic smoking. Welcome to the forum!

  9. Soon as I figure out how to get around this board a little, and get some of the recipes written down I will be glad to share them. Biggest thing is don't be afraid to try anything. After I realized that and how to control temp I took off. Last year I took my wife camping and cooked the entire week for her. Everything from fried eggs and blueberry pancakes to Elk roast and veggies, enchiladas and strawberry shortcake for desert.. I will also jump in on the sausage board also.

    Happy smokin
