Ok, so this is my situation. I am home at my parents house for the holiday season, and my father has constructed a smoker. It is about 5' high and a couple feet accross, with 5 old refrigeratior racks in it. It has a propane burner on the bottom with a frying pan on top. He uses hickory and apple chips for the smoke. He put on one batch of mostly fish, and as I have an allergy to fish, I couldn't indulge in the tasty smoked food. However, there was a small amount of moose meat on there, and I enjoyed that quite a bit. So we are gonna put on another batch in the next few days with mostly various meats. My question to you is what kind of meat should I use and how shouild I prepare it. I was thinking of going to the grocery store and buying some cheap reduced beef or something. I was also considering buying a turkey or a chicken and slicing that thin and smoking it. I also know a guy who has a dehydrator, so I will be making jerky out of some of this stuff. All replys will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
