Hey guys (and gals). I'm going to build a smokehouse soon and was wanting your thoughts on whether I should go gas or electric for a 36x30x48. I would probably use a burner like pops used. (Thanks for the write up Pops!) if its not too big for this size. If the gas would be too much I could use a 1000w hot plate. Electric would be handy since I wouldn't have to worry about running out of gas. The smoker will be mostly used for sausage and bacon. I have the MES for hot smokes. I live in Missouri so temps vary hugely from 10 F to 110 F. The MES has no problem keeping temps up. Thanks for all the help!
