New member, hopefully a LONG time member, but new to smoking. I have a problem..ive been asked to smoke up a meal for my group at work after a # of co-workers go to sample some of my smoking projects this spring and summer. Chickens, roasts, tons of sausage, lots of salmon..etc. My only real mistake so far, was my smoker got a good buildup of creosote in it once, and I didnt notice it on time, and one cookout was a tad sharp to the tongue..but beer fixed it. So..where in the San Jose/Santa Cruz/Nor cal area might I be able to FIND a large smoker to rent? Ive used Gator Pits when I visit family in Houston, but..I dont think such a thing exists in this area despite gobs of searching. Is there any hope? If there isnt..I smell a side business in renting cookers, but first -I- need one. Thanks for any assistance! PS: Yes, I can perhaps find a caterer, but..id like to try this myself, and save lots of department $$ too.
