    I'm from idaho. Harvest lots of wild game each year. Now its time to learn how to smoke and prepare meat. I've made jerky oven and (little chief) , stuffed alot of sausage.. But am ready to make the good stuff. Just don't know a darn thing!!??? Most stuff i have smoked??? Well I way over smoked and had way to much heat for to long. So Hear i am... All eyes.. I have been humbled by my own will (so to say). I am ready to learn. This site is full of great info... so hear I am.

    So i shut it down about 2 hours ago and its still at 165.. I have it dialed in at 200...

    I will post picts tomorrow. But this thing is needing very little propane. I am just useing a little lantern style bottle. I ran it over five hours seasoning the the unit.. It still feels over half full(The little bottle)..My vent is only a 3/4 inch pipe. I had to cut the bottum seal off the door for it to kepp a flame. Once i did that i put my coleman 2 burner stove ( only one burner running on almost off.) as low as it would go. I just used the second burner to to get the inerts up to temp. ( meaning the insulation and side walls.) I shut the second burner off at 235 and then my other burner is set at almost off... It kept the temp at 195 for over 3 hours steady before I shut it off. (I just ran pan after pan of smoke through it to season it)... tomorrow is the big day.

    What you guy's think 200 for a couple hours just like i do my oven jerky??? How many pans of smoke?? Or should i ask how much smoke?? It seems a pan last about 1 hour.. Any ideas for the greenhorn???[​IMG]

    Ryan...
