    I have the dryer and it works very well. If you've ever made jerky before using other methods, a chore you inevitably run into is having to either move the pieces around to insure even drying or...

    Template for foiling the bottom of ST

    I replace the foil in the bottom of the smoker after each smoke, and it was always a bit time consuming trying to cut the exact size I needed and often I'd cut it too small or too big. So I cut out...

    I have the cold smoke plate and it works quite well, but the basic method is to leave the smoker on for only 15 minutes, then turn it off and leave the door closed for another 45 minutes. Even with...

    I've seen people use a pan filled with water or whatever under the meat with ST and other similar types of smokers. I'm not a big fan of this. As the meat cooks it drips down on the smoke house and...

    Practice on chicken since it's cheap. Once chicken is mastered, move on to turkey, goose, duck, cornish hen, etc.

    I'm assuming 100 is a typo and you meant to type 180F.

    Personally I wouldn't cook a tender cut of meat at such a low temperature. There's really no reason to do so since there's not much...

    Detailed cook time and other info

    Since the question of cook times comes up quite often, I thought I'd post the data from the pork shoulder that I cooked today. It should be stressed that cook times should be based on internal...

    Whitefish for lunch, ribs for dinner

    Last weekend I was smoking some ribs for dinner and hadn't really planned anything for lunch. So I threw some frozen whitefish fillets (still frozen) on the top rack. I smoked everything with just...

    If you cook the ribs to the 'fall off the bone' point, you won't be able to easily grill them without them falling apart completely. For St Louis ribs, I've found about 5.5 hours at 225F gets them...

    Peach wood

    Last February I pruned my peach trees back and saved the larger branches for smoking. Most of the sticks are about 1" in diameter or so and cut to 12-18" lengths.

    Assuming they are dry enough by...

    First impressions with the 1100

    I bought a model 1100 a few days ago and I thought I'd list my first impressions with it. In retrospect I almost wish I had gotten the 1400. I say almost because this model is pretty small, which...
