Hey guys gals!! I am excited to start smoking. I just got a $200 electric smoker, and I am itching to use it. Temp range is 100-275. The nice thing is I have about 200 fruit trees that I prune each fall and spring. So guess what?! Now I can make good use of of clippings. I have a rather small smoker, it's only 2.1 cf. but that's all I need till I figure out what I am doing. Lol Anyways I plan to do a turkey this year for thanksgiving. So anyone with advice, bring it on!!! I plan to do about a 12-13 pound bird. So I got to practice up some before the big day. Anyone that has suggestions for a beginner? What is the easiest thing to start out doing? Wanted to smoke some hard cheese but from what i have found my smoker gets to hot. :-( I have never smoked before.
