Good Morning, Doing my first strami's in my smoke hollow. I figured go big or go home. Put 8 CBB in. Rubbed with 8T 1/4 cracked black pepper 8T ground Coriander 2T granulated Onion 2T granulated Garlic Apple juice in bath. Soaked and rinsed to remove salt. Let sit in fridge overnight to drain some excess moisture. In smoker at 8am to warm up before Hickory and Cherry. I think this will hold about 15 CBB. It is huge.
