Another Newbie from Michigan

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hidey ho neighbors, I'm just starting to look seriously into getting into smoking my own. I've made jerky for years using a dehydrator but want to do more. I'm looking at building my own smoker but not sure what materials are best. I've got some osb but I'm a but hesitant to use that. Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you all.

Welcome to the forum John.  We have a Michigan group here.


If you get a chance check it out and join if you have not done so yet.


We also have a Michigan map you can put yourself on if you would like.


It’s always nice to see another Michigander here.  When you build your smoker please show us the pics.

Thanks for the welcome! Stan, I joined the group and added myself to the map, thanks again. My wife is encouraging me to buy a smoker instead of building one (I about fell down). A friend highly recommended the Camp Chef Smoke Vault, any thoughts on that brand?
