Hi, I'm new to the forum and I had a question about making beef jerky in my smoker. My smoker is just a tank with a firebox off to the side. I wanted to know what everyone else was using to fire thier smoker to make jerky. I tried wood and lump charcoal and both impart too much smoke on the meat before it is done. I really wanted to do the jerky from start to finish in the smoker. Does anyone know of a fuel or paticular brand of charcoal that I can use that wont smoke the meat so much?
