  1. Just ordered the LEM 20lb smoker do you have to use just the saw dust or can you use chips as well ?

  3. Forgot to tell ya all I am a meat cutter who decided after a number of years to break down and buy a smoker and the grinder and we are going to have with this !! I love to hunt and I know of a whole mess of things you can do with venison and a smoker , not to mention just meat in general . I hope I made the right choice as to the purchase of the lem 20 lb smoker can't wait to get my mitts on it ..

  9. Yea I wanted electric due to the cost of propane around here and didn't want to try my hand with charcoal just yet . Just set it and go for now hope to go a little bigger in a couple years then maybe charcoal be nice to build one from brick with a dutch oven hanger on the side !!
  10. Now what about supplies as far as casings and cure ? Does everyone order from links off here or is there a cheaper place to shop ??
