I have been using a Big Chief smoker for several years primarily for making Venison Jerky and Snack Sticks.
However, we usually make this stuff in November and December when it can be pretty cold (varies from -10 to +30 Fahrenheit) and my Big Chief (even with an insulated cover) cannot maintain a high enough or stable enough temperature.
So, we are thinking of buying a propane smoker since from what I have seen here, most people are talking about how to keep the heat down. Based on the reviews and cooking area that I am looking for, the Lowe's - Master Forge seems like a good fit.
So, this being the case, I have all this hickory sawdust that I had used in my Big Chief (30lbs left from a 40lb bag) that I am wondering if I can use in the Master Forge?
I have seen that most people prefer the chunks and I am fine with using them too, but just wondering if my current wood supply is no longer going to be useful or not. I looked through some previous posts regarding chunks verses chips, but didn't see anything regarding the relatively finely chopped wood that I have.
I have some questions about jerky and snack sticks too, but will address those in the proper forums.
Thanks for any advice that you can provide.
