Ok, so this is about as good as it gets. Wasn’t sure where to post this as it kind of covers so many things on this site. Here’s the deal. I built this smoker the other day. Made it from spruce lumber that came off my sawmill. Needed it to smoke my first try at sausage and some bacon that we made from our spring hogs. Worked better than I had expected. Oh. And I smoked the sausage and bacon on apple wood. Lumber from the mill... hardwood from the stack... and great meat on the grill!
