Hello everyone, I'm new to SMF and to smoking overall. I have smoked Venison Summer Sausage in a vertical propane smoker before. In just about a week I'll be picking up a Louisiana Grills CS-450 pellet smoker. I look forward to the versatility the pellet smoker offers compared to the propane vertical I already own. I like good music, preferably Alt-Country Americana(See Jerry Jeff Walker, Son Volt, Lucinda Williams, Ryan Bingham, Justin Townes Earle, Ray Wylie Hubbard, as well as Johnny Cash and the other outlaws!) I also enjoy craft beer, and of course BBQ. Preferably all together!
