South Dakota - new to electric smoking - MES 30

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My name is Jonathan

 

I was born and raised by BBQ people in Texas.  My grandfather owned and operated a BBQ business and food product business until he had a debilitating stroke in the 90s.  It was called Zebbie's, and it was most profitable with its Onion Ring batter mix.

 

My family has tons of smokers - all home-made - all weighing too much (offset smokers, rotisserie smokers, direct heat smokers,etc.).  I currently have the smallest one.  It is about 1,000 pounds.  The rest of them are on trailers or the like.  I have tons of experience catering and smoking for lots of people with my family.

 

That said, I know NOTHING about electric smoking except what I've learned through research on this forum. I got an Amaze N smoker to complement it.  It is sacrilegious that I even own an electric smoker.  My Paw-Paw would roll over in his grave if he knew. 

 

I am just having a hard time regulating temperature on my smoker in South Dakota cold temperatures without lots of work, and I am looking for a lazy man's way of smoking.

 

I love BBQ - ALL BBQ.  Kansas City, Memphis, Georgia, Texas... I love it all.  I prefer if it is a dead pig and that it is spicy, but I do not discriminate.

 

Look forward to learning more from you guys on here.
