Hello I have been smoking for about 40 years. But mostly chicken and turkeys. With an occasional home made sausage an when I get hungry for it some fish. Most of that time I used home made smokers from old ice boxes. But I now have for the last three years have a Master built 30 . About myself, I am 75 years old, happily married with a little Westie dog. Retired Electrician 15 years ago and now a working Locksmith. And smoking more.
