My name is Hollie and I retired last year. I started raising muscovy ducks and chickens and putting them in the freezer. Duck bacon sounds like a great idea and I found this forum looking for recipes. I need to decide what kind of smoker to get since I haven't smoked anything in 40 years. Back in the day I used my grandfather's old ice fishing shack and green apple wood to smoke the pigs I raised. Best bacon and hams ever! Already checked with the local supermarket and they have porkbellies, and I have some huge duck breasts ready to go. I'm so excited to try smoked chicken and turkey from my home raised birds after reading some of the threads here. Any thoughts on what smoker to get would be appreciated. I would like to be able to smoke and cook in cold weather and was leaning toward electric, but charcoal/wood sounds good, too. Looking for a moderately priced unit for a beginner that is versatile enough to smoke and cook.
