Hello all, I'm pretty knew to this business, but am thoroughly hooked. I built myself a smoker - adding a 2x2x2 foot firebox to the end of a grill on one end, and a 2x2x4 foot smoking tower on the other end. It works like an absolute charm... So far I've cooked about 100lbs of beef jerky, 3 turkeys, 2 chickens, a couple pork roasts, and 6 briskets. I'm still learning to deal with the weather - how humidity and temperature effect the whole process. I was smoking a big batch of jerky the other day, and found out the hard way that the rain and 85% humidity about doubled the time I normally take to do the jerky. All fun though! Looking forward to spending some time in this forum!
