    I've been smoking and making jerky for years with different equipment never anything serious. However last week I walked in to deal on a Cres Cor (70"H 26"W 30D $40.00) commercial food warmer that I have since converted into a true smoker and me and my son want to smoke anything we can find. We've done jerky and a pork shoulder and will do chickens tommorow any tips are always appreciated. I put a electric heating element in for convience while I'm at work but it's a crude set up at best. As I said any tips or comments are appreciated.

    Welcome Dave. Nice to have such a tasty and fun hobby to do with your son.
    Lotsa people here who are more than willing to give lots of advice. Only thing we ask in return is for maybe a little Qview every now and then.
    Happy smoking.

    Welcome Dave! Glad you found us. Congrats on a great find on the food warmer. I have wondered how good those would work for smokin'. I'd love to see some pics of your build.

    Welcome! One of my favorites(lately), and a real easy smoke at that, is the "Seared Chucky" or Chuck Roast. There are a lot of examples in the beef forums. Best of luck!

    What is it with labs? My friends lab has devoured his back yard. His grill is now missing a shelf. His fence is gnawed. His tree is gone. Wow!

    Welcome to SMF Dave! Please share some pic's of your smoker when you get a chance. I've been looking around locally for a warmer/ proofer but haven't found one yet.
