processhead No, I have never done 100 lb in it. I can say after loading it with 25 lb of the 2.9" X 24" casings (or whatever the biggest is) I believe it is possible but it is going to be very crowded in there for sure. Also, you might be able to get more than one row of the shorter in there.
Pulled the trigger on a new PK 100 today! Went and picked it and some other stuff up at the store in Wichita. Wish I would have had more time to look around. Any big tips and tricks for this gnarly little smokehouse??
I like to wet down the chips. Seems to get a longer lasting thicker smoke. You are gonna love the PK100
archhaymaker I also usually wet down my chips. With the PK-100 a few tips are NEVER EVER use pellets, always chips/dust. Pellets burn differently and can cause issues up to and including blowing the door off of the unit because of pressure. Really think about how much smoke flavor you want on things, the PK puts out an awesome amount of smoke but do you really want that much smoke on your Habanero BBQ snack sticks? The only time I have refilled the sawdust in ours was when I was smoking pork butts in it, maybe bacon and ham but not sausage.
Jonathon Great information. Is the PK100 at Walton’s used inside with the smoke piped out of the building? Or installed outside?
How/where does everyone else have their PK100 Smokehouse at? Outside, Garage(with vent to outside), Basement(with Vent to outside), etc?
I assume lockers or in commercial applications they would be installed inside with a chimney vented out. Thanks
I just roll mine out of the garage and go for it
