Hi everyone. I am new to smoking meats and I want to learn a lot to start a food business with smoked meats. I am 38 years old and have a successful franchise but I have owned another food business that failed so I know the extreme risk but still I really, really want to have a smoked meat quick serve store cause I love smoked meats!!!
The only smoker I have ever used was two clay pots with a electric stove inspired by Alton Brown. It worked wonderfully for years until the electric stove burnt out and I stopped. Now I want to mimic it with a crockpot!
The things I hope to learn are the advantages to using a professionally built smoker and how to maximize smoke flavor and recipes to get the best smoked flavor. I get heart burn with bbq sauce so I also like the idea of other juices or sauces that can compliment different meats that aren't bbq sauce.
I hope to read a lot of post and ask questions and learn from all of you.
Thanks so much for putting this forum together TulsaJeff
