    Hi guys, I'm Nathan from central Louisiana. I'm 28 years old. I'm definitely a newbie when it comes to smoking meat. I've had very limited experience on an old Smoke-n-Pit that my dad has, but most projects turned out fair. I'm very interested in building my own wooden, cabinet style smoker. My dad has a sawmill, so I'm curious as to what wood would be best for my project. I'm seriously considering using pecan. Also, I'm curious as to what size cabinet I should build. Would 24x24x48 be big enough to smoke ribs, turkey, And the occasional venison shoulder or ham? Also what kinds of ventilation will I need, and what temp should be my goal? Any hints and tips would be greatly appreciated!
