To introduce myself: I have had a smoking problem for about 7-8 years now. It started with what I call a silver bullet smoker that I tried out. I then bought a Lttle Chef Electric and found that I loved the hobby but that Little Chef was not satifying my smoking needs. I then built my next one out of an old frigerator. Today I use the refrigerator aka the Wookie (It is big and brown and the kids like Star Wars so it was nick named the Wookie). I also have a Charboil BBQ minus the firebox. I am in the process of building a real pit BBQ with side firebox. Married, two boys, 5 smokers, 3 feet of books on smoking. I make salami (in Michigan we have a ton of venison), sausage, fish, really anything that can be smoked I have or will smoke including bear, woodchuck. I also am working on organizing all my recipes electronically so that I can easily share the info with this group. Thanks for sharing this group, your ideas and thought with me.
