New here...I've smoked some bacon before, on a Smoke Hollow (I think) vertical smoker. There just was not enough insulation for Michigan winters, so I decided to go heavy duty when I came across electric lab ovens very cheaply. Now all I have to do is hope some of the guys from Electric Smokers can help me with the finer details in modifying my lab oven into a quality smoker!

I'm pretty new to outdoor cooking- the closest I came growing up was cooking on a woodstove. Due to food allergies to corn & all its derivatives, I have to prepare almost all my food from scratch, from the most simple, basic, whole ingredients. This includes grinding grain to bake with, making homemade marshmallow, canning & dehydrating, etc...making bacon & smoking other meats fits right in.

Thank you for the introduction, and welcome to the SMF. Sounds like you have some recipes that could be enjoyed by all.

Welcome to the site laboven.
You may have to do more prep work due to your allergies but I'm betting most of the stuff you do from scratch knocks the socks off anything you can buy premade with all kinds of crap fillers.
