    Here is my take on this vital primative skill. I didn't get to test it for longer term storage because it was so good the meat was eaten within the week.

    Very informative video. Well done. That is a really nice tarp.

    Thanks. The tarp is an old Woodsman Trail tarp. I don't believe they are made anymore.

    Tractor supply has a good canvas tarp that's water proof I think 20$ tan color

    I love smoking meats fish pork beef shrimp chicken oysters even smoked shark

    Note use hard wood not pine I use white and red bay white bay is easy to split wet or dry and give your meat a pretty color other hard wood will give a dark or yellow color depends on what you use

    Great vid! I have thought much about building a primitive smoker (unnecessary at this time unless I have no electricity available). I thought that using deer hide would work in place of the tarp. Nice tip @Bishop on the tarp at Tractor Supply... Search Results for Canvas Tarp at Tractor Supply Co.

    Indeed, deer hide works, and in addition the hide gets smoked which is beneficial to its waterproofing and color.
