Discussion in 'Blowing Smoke Around the Smoker.' started by harperlc, Dec 9, 2013.

  1. Hi all, I have read on a few websites about using an aquarium pump for better smoke but I was wondering if anyone has used one to better regulate even temperature in the entire smoker. I have had two electric smokers that I use specifically for jerky and have found with both that I have to move racks around to cook the jerky evenly (more cooked at bottom and less at top) I was wondering if anyone has used a larger pump to move the hot air around in the chamber and if this has cooked the jerky more evenly without having to move racks mid smoke which always results in lost heat and smoke. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks from North of the Border

    Having the same problem. Thought about a computer fan placed in the chip chute. Saw a post that a guy used it to help his cheese smoking.have you solved your jerky airflow issues?
