I use a vertical charcoal smoker. The outdoorsy meat and potatoes kind. No gas no electric, just not my thing. I like to use a wide variety of wood when I smoke, depends on what I am doing. I am very interested in trying out some of the Fish recipes I've seen. I commonly smoke pork loins, whole chickens, pork & beef ribs, sausages, kielbasa and ham.in that order. Sadly, I dont get to do fish often. The smoker I use is built by a guy at work out of 11ga steel, holds heat well. The legs however are made out of heavy wall 2x2" box steel, and makes the whole thing ridiculously heavy and a p.i.a. to move around. I've had it a couple years and she's nicely seasoned. Three racks about 20x21", a shelf for your OJ filled liquid pan and a state of the art and also top secret large capacity-slow burn Firebox. Haha Anyway, hello. Great forum.
