Just joined SMF and will surely have lots of questions. I am a public school teacher in Kansas and have recently started getting interested in smoking meat. I have a Treager pellet grill I use currently, but I am finding it is not big enough to do summer sausage and snack stick once deer season gets going. I like to make 20 pounds of snack sticks and up to 30 pounds of summer sausage at a time. I was looking to build my own smoker is what led me to this site. I have posted some info under the Propane section of SMF here http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/238475/new-to-me-smoker
Hopefully with your help I can get this thing going in the near future.
