    I put some snack sticks, sausage and a very small brisket on the smoker today.  For the snack sticks I used 80/20 ground beef and Hi-Mountain Jerky Cure and Season Pepper Blend.  I made half with the standard stick size on my jerky gun and the other half the the new 3/4" nozzle I just got.  I am not sure how the bigger sticks will turn out, but I am hopeful they will be good.  I am also trying to run the smoker at a little lower temperature but still have some smoke, so I have cracked the door a little.  I hope everybody has a great New Year.

    What temps are you running at with the door cracked.

    I am holding anywhere from 150 to 180 with the door cracked and still making smoke.  That is just using the thermometer on the door so I am sure it is hotter in the back of the smoker.  It's about 40 degrees outside right now.
