    My name is light my fire. I am good at grilling but this is my first time for smoking and I sure could use some advise on a smoker just to smoke sausages.  I have read a bunch of book and it seems that I need a smoker with a low temp setting around 100 degrees to smoke and increase to about 175 degrees to cook the sausages.  Any help and suggestions would be appriecated.

  2. With a little patience you can smoke on a regular grill. Put your charcoal on one side for your "hot zone" throw your wood chunks/chips on it, set what is to be smoked on the other side in the "cool zone" its also called indirect heat cooking. After that is set up you just have to play with your air intakes and exhaust till you get the heat you want dialed. Takes a little practice but well worth the experience!!!

    Hope that helps till you can find a proper smoker.

    If you're just getting into smoking and already know you're mainly interested in low temp smoking, I'd go electric. They are simple to use, set it and forget it, and a good entry smoker. I got mine over a year ago and am still very happy with it. do some research on this site to learn the good and bad of different smokers. Welcome and good luck with your smoking-we're all here for you! David.

  5. Hello and welcome.  WATCH food safety.  When talking those sort of temps you need to be thinking cured meat.  Do the research and ASK, ASK, ASK if not sure.  As far as a smoker; the options are far and wide.  Store bought or home built.  Electric, charcoal or propane.  All have pro's and con's.  Good luck.  Keep Smokin!
