Between smokers right now but hope to be back into smoking in the near future.
My background in cooking is a specialty in pastries and candy making. This leads to a very exacting mind set. While I can do the "little of this" and "a pinch of that" cooking well enough it isn't my favorite. I was doing my research a few years ago and noticed that smoking/curing shared a lot of the chemistry approach I like.
First smoker was a digital Bradley 4 shelf. Like it a lot for the small amount I made for our house. Wore it out and picked up a bad Master smoker unit that didn't work worth beans.
Was looking into getting a 6 shelf Bradley but while going through Pintrest I saw a couple home built cedar smokers that caught my eye and lead me here.
My favorite smoking is anything related to the pig. Not a huge brisket fan but go gaga over home smoked bacon and butt.
