Hey guys:

Happy to be here. My name is Joe. Been smoking and grilling for a couple decades now, and I need advice for a new venture I'd like to conquer. Just bought myself an upright smoker, chiefly to smoke chorizo from an old family recipe I have. It's a 38-inch square chamber, propane fueled with a drawer for chips & has hooks up top for hanging 9-12 sausages. The problem is, the recipe I have is for around 100 individual chorizos, & the method my family has used necessitated that they be cold smoked for about a week. Does anyone know what my targets should be, temperature and smoking time-wise for a project of a much, much smaller scale? I have my breakdowns for the ingredients I'll need. Also, can I expect anything decent if I just smoke 'em at 225-250° for a few hours?

Welcome from Iowa! Sounds like you need an amnps tray to use for cold smoking with pellets or dust. Depending on your ambient temps depends on temps you can achieve while cold smoking , would definitely help get more smoke on them.
