Looks great sureshot!

Thinking about starting to smoke my own meat.  What do you guys recommend for a smoker?  any special features I should be looking for?

It's a Bradley digital 4 rack. The meat is just beef and using one of the snakin stix kits from hi mountain. Might make some candied salmon in the next couple of days.

I use a "masterbuilt" propane smoker from Bass Pro. Had it for just over a year. Like to think i have master prime rib, pork back ribs and jerky. Spics for prime rib and pork ribs is home made memphis rub. Jerky i use the Hi-mountain blends of inferno, teriyaki or mesquite. Actually tried all 10 or 12 flavor for jerky; just those are the ones we like.

Not the best pic but one i have handy today.

you liked the kit from hi mountain andy?  i tried one, it was pepperoni sticks...looked just like yours, and the final product was like licking a salt block.  my kids ate it no problem, but i found it so salty i couldnt even eat it.  i sure wouldnt recommend it.

as for the smoker, i grew up using a homebuilt from an old fridge.  the capacity was much better than my bradley, but with a little propane burner in the bottom, i found i had to constantly babysit the damn thing.  it was always flaring up and a little grease fire would wind up ruining some product every time.  i think if you were to build something, an electric burner would be the way to go....but again, it would need babysitting to keep wood chips where they need to be.

the bradley i have now, is sooooooo much more convenient to use.  the only down side is that if you really load it up, the meat doesnt end up cooking evenly.  the automation of the heat and wood pucks is awesome though.  i have a 6 rack, and bought 6 more racks thinking i would double stack everything.  that doesnt work as well as i had hoped.  its not the most ideal for large batches of sausage in particular, but for small batches of meat, the automation is effin brilliant. 

jboutdoors has posted in this thread, but didnt mention it.  they sell the bradleys at a better price than any retailer ive seen.  they are worth checking out if a bradley is on your mind.
opinions are like sphincters......everyone has one, and they all stink!

Even heat is always a problem in the Bradleys. That insulated smoker I built should keep more even heat and it's easy to control, I just need a smaller burner for it. I am going to see if I can find the same burner walleyes used in his.

My Dad and uncles all used old fridges andi figured i should follow suit. You need the old metal type with metal liner. Mines about 10 yrs old , no great pics right now but heres one of the last batch of jerky. I use a dual hot plate, external thermometer and has a vent out the top.
