Just joined up here. Thought I'd make a post. Been cooking all my life and really enjoy trying new recipes. I've got several cooking machines, from charcoal to electric. Today I chose to plug in the electric and do some poppers and venison backstrap. Bow season opens up here shortly and this was the last of the meat minus some burger from last year. It's been raining all day and I figured I'd fix a good lunch. Got everything marinated last night and into the fridge. I had an element go out in my smoker so I fixed that this morning then preheated smoker. Around 11:00am I popped everything in the smoker and shut the door. Set my alarm for an IT of 145* and came into watch some TV. Everything turned out great. Jalapeños from the garden, venison from the back 40, what more could a man ask for?
