    What exhausting work. spent the entire weekend smoking a whole bunch of stuff. Had lots of fresh salmon that the wife had caught which needed smoking as well as her fishing buddy Jimmy had run out of his salmon snacks so he gave me over 15 pounds worth to smoke.

    Then there was more.....

    Jerky taking a bath in the Brine

    Jerky going into the dehydrator for six hours after spending two hours in the smoker. What was a challenge was that I had 7 Big Chief racks worth of Jerky ready to go, but a Big Chief has only 5 shelves available, so I had to get out the other Big Chief to help share the load. All went well.

    In goes salmon nuggets for 2+ hours after the jerky came out

    Meanwhile Master built gasser smoking jack and cheddar cheese and butter using only ANMPS with Hickory pellets for heat and smoke. The propane tank was not used. Just set up for the gasser's next task, below

    Meanwhile meatloaf on a maple plank waiting to go into the gasser once the cheese and butter comes out. Will reside inside for 2.5 hours or an IT of 160°
