Building/buying a smoker
I spent $450 on snack sticks and jerky last year. My little girl loves the pepperoni sticks so it may be time to build or buy my own. My only concern with buying is I've been reading they may not hold their temps outside in cold weather, which is when I'd do the majority of my smoking. Not sure if there is any truth to that.
To build one, I was thinking of a small cedar house on cement blocks, a pipe maybe two, connecting to a pit made of brick, for the wood and seasoned chips.
Any recommendations? I like the idea of building my own but field and stream have a "grill-like" one that is about $180.
I'm looking to do it right and make good meats, with some practice of course. Any +\- to building/buying in terms of quality meat?
Hope this thread is in the correct place,
It's a good spot. Just not today.
