I am new to smoking sausage but what the heck. I thought an electric smoker was a must in order to keep/control a more constant temp. I have more temp control over my stick burner than this thing problem is I can't hang sausage in it. Is smoking sausage with an electric smoker supposed to be this much babysitting or is it just me? I didn't want to throw a manufacturer under the bus if indeed it was me.
