Newbie from Downunder

  1. G'Day from Downunder mates!  I'm Marty from Downunder..South Australia..and have only been a member of SMF for about a month.  Thanks for all the good ideas about smoking etc.  The truth of the matter is, I grew up in Pittsburgh with my grandparents cold smoking "kolbassi" in the winter months.  I was only the "go-for" boy when something was needed and never really learned the sausage making process nor the smoking.  Moved to Florida a little later in life and only used a Weber Kettle Grill for smoking the holiday turkeys. Now living in South Australia and slowing learning outdoor cooking from all of you plus already enrolled in the 5 online lessons.  Hope to learn alot more from all of you.

    Thanks - Marty

    Welcome Marty...  I look forward to some great Aussie Q-view from ya'.

    I have a question... If a BBQ grill is called a Barbie there... Would a Smoker be called a Shelia? Probably not. [​IMG]
  10. Thanks to all of you for the warm welcome. I have enjoyed reading and learning from the forums so far. 

    Smoke_Chef - It's a Bar-bee comment on the Shelia part.  I made that mistake once, and only once.  It's cold at night here in South Australia and the dog doesn't appreciate company in her dog box.  LOL

    Welcome and looking forward to some Aussie ways of smoking meat. [​IMG]
  12. Will send pictures when I do my smokes.  Not much of a variety in terms of smokers here in Oz.  At the moment, I'm experimenting with my gas bar-bee.  I did build a plywood cold smoker a few weeks ago and tried my hand at sausage.  They didn't look much like my grandparents sausage but tasted pretty good.  Reading more about cold smoking from the forums.
