I bought a homemade smoker and finally got to use it this weekend. Had no idea how long it would take, but after 2 days I reached the finish line. The salmon is awesome and can't wait to smoke more and try the halibut as well. My only problem that I see is that I need to figure out how to get more heat. Would like to try meat but am worried about the time it took to do the fish which is relatively thing. I have a commercial oven that was converted. A propane burner is used for heat and a chimney then travels about 15 inches up to the oven.
