Re: Tx smoking Brisket love that thing , bought it for a steal from a guy selling out his bbq food truck
Homemade Smoker!!! First test run
mikeihuntr I finally got these posted!
All I can say is that is totally rad!
It apparently works good.
What sort of Sausages you have going there?
Totally awesome! Nice work!
pauliedmondsjr That batch was 10lbs. Goose and 5lbs. Pork and 1lbs. Bacon with natural hog casings.
mikeihuntr OK, that helps explain the color of the sausages.
For most of my days I’ve made one sort or another of home grown smokers. So I have a natural appreciation for home made smoke boxes.
Early last year I ran out of Bradley Pucks for my Brinkman UDS converted to a Bradley smoke generator, I did order a box of my favorite, (Hickory) pucks, but I did not like the price.
Long story short, I’ve gravitated into Masterbuilt Smokers, but after my first attempt, I modified it into a working smoker.
Where I am now, I should have, again, built my own smokerbox. But it’s nice having what I have.
I see you have a double electric hotplate and burn your chips on one side. I did that for decades, too.
I came to be here because I’m gravitating into Snack Sticks, and hopefully Kielbasa in the future. And Walton’s has everything I’ll need as I sink into the mire of a new vain in smoking meats.
I’m sitting growing spider webs on my elbows waiting for FedEx to drive their 20 mule team from Kansas to California with my first order.
My intended first trial will be some Willie’s Seasoning Snack Sticks in 19mm, Pork Shoulder.
I also Cure and Smoke my own Bacon’s (Slab and Canadian).
But I have a hare brained idea to make a Pork Belly Bacon into Snack Sticks. (I cold smoke my bacons after curing. So basically be seasoning and grinding a slab to stuff.) Hense, a Hare Brained Idea. LOL!
Enjoy your Home Grown Smoker Box. I really like it!
pauliedmondsjr thanks and happy smoking!!!
