At the moment i'm cleaning out and getting ready to season my masterbuild gas smoker. I used to make snack sticks in a dehydrator using some ground beef and the seasoning and cure. I then stuffed it into the jerky gun and make strips or sticks. I want to do the same in the smoker but i'm kind of stumped. I see alot of people using casings to make theirs. Do i need to do this in the smoker? Or can i pretty much do it the same way as in a dehydrator

Personally I like to put my meat into a casing but you don't have to. Now Bear Carver does his without the casings and they look fine too me.

Great. I've noticed at low the temp stays around 180. Thats just what the therm. says on the door though. Is that a low enough temp to cook them at? I know practice makes perfect but i'm having people over tonight and i dont want to look like a noob
