newbie to smoking meat forums

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by hammer, Jun 28, 2008.

  1. but an old timer to the craft. wanna introduce myself, from iowa originaly but now reside at the southmost tip of illinois and work in paducah ky. i build, move and remodel homes and also do maintence for a real estate office in ky. my latest smoker is a great outdoors brand smokey mountain series. got it from a house we cleaned out after the dr. who rented the place left it there. i have modifed one of the side air intakes to allow me to attach a metal bread box i cut to fit the air intake and allow offset cool smoking. i do alot of cheese. my goal is to continue smoking the not thought of smoked items. i enjoy suprising others with a tidbit smoked. so far only green olives have been rejected by me, but a teen boy loved them. i ask for any input of what you have smoked that i might not have thought of, and what you have smoked that didnt taste well afterwards. i sure enjoy smoking a butt for the week and the continued flaverful meals all week long. hope ya all are having a good weekend!!! hammer

    Hey hammer welcome to the SMF family. I use a GOSM meownself and have outfitted my unit with a Char-griller SFB, now I can use propane or charcoal.

    BTW-I split your post off of the other thread, this way more folks will see your introduction and have a chance to give you a proper SMF welcome.

    Sit back, enjoy an adult beverage and enjoy the site!
