Visited Ste Marie among the Hurons this weekend and was captivated by the light in the smokehouse. Love the tang of woodsmoke, and while in search of the 'perfect' feeling, it was amusing to listen to other tourists hollering "PETA! Argh!" in a holier-than-thou fashion.

I'm not at all sure about the accuracy of the reenactment, but if it is, then this is 16th century food processing and primary manufacturing of hides in Canada.
