    Sir Smokesalot here.

    Howdy all, writing from Everett Wa. today. just a little bit north of Seattle. I have been using the site for almost a year now and wow has the quality of my barbecue increased! I use a Smoke hollow water smoker for ribs, bacon, brisket, and pork butt. And for the barbecue duties I use a 2014 model charbroil tru infrared with grillgrates. Occasionally I use the firepit in the yard to smoke and cook with logs, typically hazelnut, since we have a hazelnut tree in our yard.
    Just wanted to say keep up the good work and I am proud to support such an ...ehem , amazing!! site!
    Cheers, or as we say it here Skal!!


    But one has to ask: Just what does "Sir Smokesalot" smoke a lot of since you are in WA?


      Good to have ya....no kidding on the quality of BBQ you can produce. I literally came out the gate with this website with respect to smoking ribs, butts, briskets, etc., etc....freaks people out.


        Incredibly enough even though I live in the state with the highest proclaimed recreational and medicinal pot use in the nation, I myself have never done it other than second hand use.


          Welcome Sir. Go Aquasocks!


            Welcome SS! When you get a chance please check out my Welcome letter and Tips post here. Tip #1 will help you create your Sig.


              Hi, well I think I screwed up. I am working with wild caught Salmon and put it in a Sugar and Morton Canning Salt according to the directions I got on another site. Here is were I think I am in trouble, I have had it in the refrigerator for 4 days because of some events that kept me from finishing and smoking (hot smoke) the fish. I did get to turn it in the container every day but that is it. So is my fish dead? Can I save it by rinsing it adding a little brown sugar and follow the directions on this site to finish the site? Will I kill my family? It looks perfectly fine and doesn't have an off odor. I recently joined because I wanted to start smoking fish and meat so I need beginners help. Thanks Pam

              Welcome Sir Smokesalot, I use my firepit it all the time in the winter to cook breakfast after a bon fire the night before.

              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’.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

              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.
