  1. Do I fill water bowl in electric smoker when smoking summer sausage. I want my summer sausage dry so I would assume no water but I have no clue thanks
    P.S does the same go for jerky

    I never use water in my electric smoker, many others actually fill them with sand to help diffuse heat.

    I don't care for "greasy" ss either. I don't use any pork in my SS or snack sticks. The batch I made this weekend was 70% venison and 30% 80/20 beef. Taste and texture is great and not greasy at all.
