    Welcome to the forum from Lansing Mad dog.  And what a great forum it is to learn the art of smoking everything.

    I have never done jerky from corned beef.  I would think too much fat and fat turns rancid.  I use (my favorite) pork loin or beef eye of round and with either one I cut out as much fat as I can.

    I think fish can transfer from one smoke to another.  If there was rancid fat in the bottom of the smoker then that can give your dinner a funky taste.  You should not have to wash the walls but foil in the bottom for easy clean up is a must.

    For the best smoke an amazing tube pellet smoker is my choice.  For cheese the dust is my choice.

    We have a Michigan group here.  http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/groups/show/27/michigan-members-group          The largest state group on the site and growing.

    If you get a chance check it out and join if you have not done so yet.

    We also have a Michigan map you can put yourself on if you would like.  http://www.mapservices.org/myguestmap/map/smfmichgroup?selected=658368

    It’s always nice to see another Michigander here.

    Think for the help I one more thing to ask should you cut most of the fat of must of the meats you smoke even pork because in going to smoke a pork lion tomorrow and got any good tips
  12. No!!!!!
    Leave thr fat cap on the pork loin. Brine it overnight in a mixture on one gallon water with 1 cup kocher salt and two cups of brown sugar. Maje dure it is completely covered.
    Wrap the whole loin in bacon before going in the smoker.
    do a quick search of the pork section and you will get some great tips!
