Welcome ghost, I too would like to see some pics of that homebuilt smoker. 14 gauge that should last forever and a lot of good cooks. Looking forward to your posts

Ghost - welcome to SMF - Hang around, you're in good company (the best actually) Lots to learn here and help if you need it. Don't forget about the chat feature, it's really handy. Besides there's local folk there, we're like neighbors.

Keep Smokin

WOW !!!
Thanks for the warm welcome
I'll post a pic as soon as I can but it's pretty ugly , smoke pouring out everywhere, temp so low I can't even get a reading, takes 7 hours to properly smoke jerky but I can about 8 lbs at a time, it's everything I wanted :lol:
But I am serious about the temp, I brine or dry cure everything first and cold smoke my meats and fish.
