    Hi -

    My name is Chris Cavanna i got a smoker for my birthday just trying to figure things out. Just got a new (old) Enterprise meat grinder and a 5lb stuffer from gander. My smoker is a smoke hollow electric with a vent mod done to it. I mainly am here to learn about sausage making. Nice to meet everyone :)

  3. Hi,

    I just bought a "char griller" smoker. It is my first smoker, and I am just learning this ancient art of smoking. I would say I am "just learning". Please send me any tips, suggestions, or just general knowledge I "should" have. I live in West Des Moines, married, father of 2. I love to grill and would probably grill every night if I could. A friend of mine got me in this a few years ago, and I can't wait to learn and cook as much as I can. I work for an insurance company.

    Chris, welcome to the SMF and Happy Birthday.

    There's even a 'sausage' thread here so any questions you have will certainly get those versed in the method involved in answers.
