    First run in modified smoker

    Yep Jason I gave it a cold shower out of the smoker then let it set on the counter room temp about 2 hours then put in fridge for about 4 hour unwrapped.  I think it may have something to do with the seasoning/curing mix. I'm trying a different mix next time. my friend had the same problem last...

    Thank you Al, if it tastes as good as it looks I will be thrilled. The smoking process is doing good so far in in the 4th hour and no problems.

    Deer summer sausage question

    I'm making a batch of summer sausage and would like some suggestions on what wood to smoke with? I have used hickory in the past but I'm open to experiment, but I don't want to ruin the batch with the wrong wood flavor.

    Questions - making snack sticks

    I use a lot of premix seasoning products and have had good luck with them. sometimes I will add stuff but if its to hot that is hard to mellow out. I always take a sample and fry in a pan or bake in the oven to do a taste test then adjust flavor from there before smoking.
