    I have absolutely no experience, I was over at a friends place on the weekend and he just finished preparing some deer sausage in his little chief, One smell and I was hooked, I have a primary interest in smoking game meat but I am open to anything. I bought a little chief to get started and help me decide what I really want.
    Any help or comments are appreciated

    Welcome from out here in The Okanagan Valley BC, what province are you from?

    Any relation to the Zellers Christmas bear? LOL

    I have a Zeddy bear sitting on my desk because my sister in law is a manager at Zellers.

    The little Chief is a fine smoker because it can easily maintain lower temps. I bought mine to do salmon with. For fish I don't think you can get a better smoker. However for smoking things like Roasts, ribs or poultry you will probably need a smoker that can maintain higher temperatures. Poultry really needs a smoker that can max out at or above 250f and even better if it can get to 300f or more. Ribs , pork butts , brisket etc do well around 212f - 250f for low and slow smoking. You will get lots of differing opinions on the exact correct temperatures, the best type of wood , the best type of smoker etc. Part of the fun of it all is deciding which formula is best for you.

    Remember we love qview. ( pictures of your smokes )
