Hi,
My name is Jan. I live in Brisbane Australia and have been a hunter, fisherman, sausage maker, curer and smoker for a long time. I have built several smokers over the years and my latest one is made from a converted bread proofer.
All stainless inside and out and fully insulated. This coming winter it will be fired up.
In the smoke stack I have a removable slide with several small computer fans to help me dry and also smoke my biltong.
When time permits, I will certainly be a good participating forum member, no doubt I also will have lots of questions.
Cheers,
Jan.

Biltong are strips of meat, dipped in a spice/salt mix, cured and dried. I just like mine smoked as well.
A bit like Jerky, the Biltong strips are just longer and thicker. Google it for recipes and photo's
Cheers,
Jan.

Hi All,

My name is Warren and I live in North Wales in the UK. I've been loving BBQ for years but I'm pretty new to low n slow smoking - I have a Weber WSM which I enjoy but I wanna get creative and build an offset smoker. I haven't found much over here to help me with the design so I'm hoping you guys will help steer me in the right direction....and when I say 'build' I really mean design cos I couldn't weld two sticks together (I'm defo much better in the kitchen than the workshop!), but hey it looks fun n maybe learning to weld is on the horizon! Other passions are biking..mountain bikes and a bit of road biking...so all things Bikes n BBQs keep me happy. Looking forward to getting to know you guys.

Cheers Warren

Hello all! I've been lurking around the site for quite some time now and thought i may as well jump in and say hi. I currently bought a set of plans from the smokerbuilder site and as of last night have started on my 250 gal rf build. I think i can confidently say there isnt anything like this in use here in the adirondacks lol.

Hahaha, you're a cack(cackle) Puff, biltong is a traditional style of drying meat in the southern African countries(I think the Kalahari bushmen do it, I may be wrong), like jerky but way more spicy & way more tasty. There's also Droewos, a traditional sausage(boerewors) that's dried, it's also soooooo good, I usually take some to work to snack on between meal breaks.

Hello! Good morning!! My name is Adam I am Brazilian, I live in the South of Brazil. I'm a fan of smoked meat and poultry, which led me to want to make a smoker and looking for a good design I came up to this wonderful Forum. Sorry if there are errors, I'm using a translator to write this message.
