    I'm new so I just want to introduce myself. I'm from Ohio about 6 miles from Lake Erie. I'm a big time fishermen. We fish the lake for walleye, perch and steelhead. I live about 200 yards from the river and it gets rolling in the fall with steelhead. As I type they are moving in for the winter.
    I just got done with my new smoker. It's a 1965 General Electric refrigerator. It has 5 racks and propain burner. I got the burner off of Ed at

    After I get all me pictures in order I'll post them. Well try to. Do I have to "season" this thing? It's all metal with a porcelain inside.

    Looking forward to learn the art of BBQ'n and Smokin'

    Welcome to SMF Smoke20. Glad to have you here with us. Definitely post some of those pics. We also love the Q-view from your smokes. It won't hurt to season that smoker. Give it a good test run to see how the temps run for you.

    Welcome Smoke20 -

    It's always a good idea to season cooking gear if nothing more it'll start laying down a good bed of rust resistant grease! It'll also give you an idea of how to control the heat and smoke before throwing the meat in there ...

    Can't wait to see pix of the 1965 General Electric refrigerator-now-smoker. Where along Lake Erie are you? I grew up in northern Ohio and we fished the heck outta that lake for years... mostly yellow perch. [​IMG]

    You say you live up by Erie? I fished Erie through the ice last year and it is true what they say.."Erie is the best Walleye fishing in the world!!"

    Anyway..... welcome to the sight. There is an incredible wealth of knowledge here, and these guys/ gals are great!
