Hello everyone, I'm new to smoking but not new to forums. I'm sure I can navigate my way around here just fine. I recently purchased a Big Chief electric smoker under the assumption that I could use it for Smoking and Fully cooking my meats. I found out so far that beef can be done enough to eat in it, but poultry and pork can not. I plan on removing the heating element and rigging up an electric hotplate with an adjustable thermostat. I will also be using the insulator wrap to keep the temps inside even. If anyone can point me in a direction to help with this journey please let me know.
