Thanks y'all. I've always been interested in smoking meats for my family,but never got serious about about it until now. My fur boys are "treating " out of house and home. Between the 2 or about 330lbs,I'm spending about $120.00 a month on treats alone. There was a company that made smoked mackeral jerky, but they went out of business and I haven't found a quality or affordable substitute.I refuse to spend $6-10 for a beef knuckle or $30 for 16oz bag of salmon bits. Currently, I'm treating with raw beef femur and chicken/duck feet. I'm worried about food poisoning so I need to come up with something. We're planning on making a file cabinet smoker for all of us. That's a lot of chicken feet for them and brisket for us. The possibilities are mouth watering, so thanks for any suggestions.
