Quick Intoduction

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by weekend warrior, Jan 28, 2015.

  1. I wanted to take a quick minute to introduce myself. My name is Phil and I live in central Nebraska. I am married with one child and one on the way. Most of my hobbies are involved outdoors (hunting, fishing, go to the lake). I have been smoking food for about 6 years. I started with and still have my Green Mountain Grill. I wanted something a little bigger a few years later to process all of my deer meat (sticks, muscle jerky, sausage, and bacon) but also be able to do larger cooks. I ended getting and 1950’s Hotpoint refrigerator that I converted into a smoker (smoke daddy for smoke source, electric heating element, and digital controller). I consider myself a novice compared to others on here but know more than everyone else in my family so I am an expert to them.

    I like my fridge smoker, but it doesn’t produce the finished product that I would like. Don’t get me wrong it tastes good and I get great reviews, but know it can be much better. I will continue to use my fridge for all of my deer meat, but I plan on getting a RF made by a local guy that has made a lot of smokers. I met with him and he looked at one he built about 10 years ago. It looked great but he said we could customize it however we wanted [​IMG]

    I will start a new thread regarding the RF build and suggestions you may have!
