I want to purchase an electric smoker or stainless steel dehydrator to make jerky/meat sticks, but just not sure which one to buy. I've read alot of posts on here and still not sure which direction to go in. I own a Cookshack Amerique smoker which is an excellent piece of equipment, but very difficult to make jerky and meat stcks in. I've seen numerous threads with pictures of the amazing jerky and meat stick all of you have made and would love to be able to produce the same quality if possible. I would appreciate any input from all of you on what manufacture you use and pictures if possible. I would like a produce pounds at a time if possible without paying thousands for a unit. Of if theres a decent unit out there that works great for cooking jerky and sausage that would even ne better, but baby steps first i quess. Thanks again for the help.
