    Hi, out there-I just bought a new Little Chief smoker and have never used a smoker before.It has come with very limited recipes and directions.All of the smoker recipes I've found are based on a temp of 225 deg.But mine only goes to 170.Any advice how long I should smoke a chicken quarter for? or how long per lb at this temp?thanks for your help!

    I have had a few little & BIG Chiefs, and they worked great for Salmon & have smoked a lot of different things in them & finished in the oven or a bbq for higher temps. I used to also put the cardboard box over the smoker to protect from the wind & get a little higher temps. I don't think the manufacturer would suggest this[​IMG] but everyone I know that had one did it.......My suggestion: Use the Chief to infuse the smoke & finish on a grill (even put wood chips in a aluminum foil pouch on a burner & get more smoke) or finish in the oven. Good luck!

    I personally do not have one of these smokers. But I can tell you do not use the factory thermometer. They are rarely accurate. Get yourself a digital one or two.

    Second, head on over to Roll Call and introduce your self. Give us an idea of who you are.
