smoke food=good

  1. Hi, I live in Chicago. I am fairly new to smoking, at least compared to many of the people on these forums. Basically I love smoked meats, I'm a chef, and I love anything having to do with food: cooking food, cooking equipment, cocktails, buffets, camping, hospitality, picnics, oh I could go on....

    I am currently working on building my own file cabinet smoker, a project hindered by the fact that I am a way better cook than a craftsman. I have used industrial smokers in a kitchen and decided that I want to build my own, including independent temperature, humidity, ventilation, and smoke control (um, can anyone teach me Arduino?). I've been at it for a couple months now.

    At home I have a pressure smoker, which I bought because it was cheap and I was interested in how it worked. I also have, or would have, a cold smoke generator I built if I could stop taking it apart and putting it back together. I keep flipping on whether to buy a MES30 because I keep seeing them for a decent price, but somehow that feels like giving up on my projects.
