I brought home some kielbasa from work the other day and put some smoke to em!

Smoke and kielbasa!   MMMMM!!!

Decided to use the Ol' Doughnut Box smoker today...the A-maze-n Smoker is on top waiting to

go in for the smoke. Its loaded with some pecan dust.

Here are some larger links to be used in various dishes like fried potatos, cabbage and noodles, ect.

Here are a couple of traditional naked fatties made with the bulk Kielbasa meat.

they are great sliced and  fried in a pan to warm up and served on some toasted bread for a quick sandwich.

The a-maze-n smoker has really made this smoker a set it and forget it smoker. I used to hassel with trying to use an electric hotplate and a pan of wood chunks to make some smoke. What a pain....and I never was able to get the length of smoke time I wanted out of that setup. The AMNS also allows me to run this smoker out behind my storage barn( no electricty there ) where it is protected from the wind much better.

2 and a half hours later @ 225* the links came out lookin nice!

I gotta agree with AK1.

You aren't sorry, we know better.

Man does that look great!

What internal temp did you take that stuff to?

The only problem I can see is Pennsylvania is much to wide of a state!!!

And then you gotta be on the North Coast too! Must be about 600 miles all total !

 I took everything to 160*  IT.  I have a sister that lives in penna....but just across the state line. the 3rd exit on the penna turnpike I think.

Is that close enough?

LOL---That's still probably 300 miles!

As windy as it's been for the last 24 hours, I should have been able to smell that kielbasa though!

    I only have 4 racks right now. I'd like to get 4 more racks someday. I can do 8 pounds of jerky at a time now. If you look at the 5th pic you can see the amns down next to the burner. it gets the most amount of fresh air down there since there are intake dampers on eachside. I tried it on the ceramic discs( on the light colored spot in the center ) but it got too hot being right over the burner and all the dust seemed to burn up at one time. the pipe coming in from the side is from a beer keg firebox that i had for the original design...well it was only a smoke generator, really. that is where I had the electric hotplate and pan of wood chunks. i'll find a pic.

I originally started with propane in the keg...but when I almost blew myself up cause it kept going out I abandoned that design.



Here it was ready for its seasoning



Here it is full of pork backribs...well not quite full, still had an extra rack.



Here is all 18    half racks of pork back ribs...done in 2 batches.



Its quite a smoker.  Its biggest problem is its all alluminium. The wind really sucks the heat out of it.  I have plans to insulate it someday and put an outer skin of metal over it.

SOMEDAY!!!!

Thanks

The funny thing here is that if you don't look close, you won't notice that that freakin' smoker is two full rib racks deep !!!!!
