I emailed the company last night concerning what they say you can smoke on thier product. Thought this may help others that were in my shoes... Jack Thank you for your time and interest in our products. Our smokers are closer related to a dehydrator than a cooker. The internal temperature will be about 165 with the smoker full and 70 or warmer outside. It will do things like Fish, Sausage, and Jerky to completion, however something larger like Ribs, Roast, or a Turkey you will want to put in the smoker to get the smoke flavor then you will need to finish cooking it in the oven (or your favorite way).
