    Hello from Northern Saskatchewan

    Hello everyone, Bradie here from Northern Saskatchewan. When I mean north, I mean about 250 km's from the Northwest territories, needless to say, I'm up in the sticks. I found the website this spring when looking for better ways to use my Bradley 4 rack electric smoker. I was never really satisfied with the food I was putting on the table with it, never had that true smokey taste. Wow, what a eye opener finding this site! I immediatley sold my Bradley after reading the reviews for it and went, bought a Weber Performed Platinum and The Smokenator to start. It's turning out great!

    I'll just add a couple pictures a batch of smoked Walleye and a smoked Turkey I did for a co-worker's going away party. Never would have turned out as well as they did if I didn't find this site. The co-workers are still asking when I'm making it again.

    Great to be here, and Happy Grilling Everyone!!

      Done and done. I'm smoking some Fatty Lake Trout tomorrow and my first attempt at ribs on the Weber the day after. Hopefully turns out as well as these. Will post pics when done.

        Hey there FBH! Welcome. If you don't mind. How do you treat those eyes before the smoke?

          I've never done salmon, I always found the store bought not to be as good as fresh caught. I usually try to catch all the fish I smoke.

          Makes sense as far as eyes go. I'll be testing this soon

          Thank you

                  Agreed, beautiful shot! Looks like a Windows wallpaper. We get them here but never that brialliant. I don't know what I'd do if I saw that in the sky! I have lots of memories of seeing them when out smelt dipping at night with my dad.

                    No deer up in here, too far north. South where I'm originally from, monster whitetails! Mostly big bull moose and caribou up here. I will be going for some open draw moose this fall. Couple 60+ inch bulls have been spotted not far from town. Can't wait to put a couple moose steaks on the grill.

                    If you want a big buck picture here you go. This is to give you a little taste on how big some of the Whitetail are around home, here's the buck my dad took back in 92'. Came second in Saskatchewan that year. Don't quote me but I think it score 207 7/8 non typical, and I can't remember what it scored typical, but he made it into Boone and Crockett.

                      It's gorgeous country up here. My buddy has a better picture than that with the lights right over town. But here is a picture of the lake about a 30 second walk from my house. It's definitely god's country up here.

                            Last winter was a cold mother. Got down to -40 C for weeks at a time. We probably had around 7 feet of snow on the ground at one time. We had a little problem with a couple wolves coming into town to scavenge for food, having trouble pulling down caribou in the deep snow.

                            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
