Help!

Hey, I was thinking about buying a True North Electric Food Smoker.
I know nothing about smoking really, just know that I enjoy jerkey, and smoked salmon, that's all I've really had. What kind of results will I get, would it be like beef jerkey you can buy in a store? And is it a hard thing to learn?
Thanks,
Andrew

    if you enjoy jerky, you need to get a dehydrator not a smoker. I do agree to get a smoker and a good cook book such as my first, the bbq bible. this will open your eyes on what is grilling and what is bbq. as for a good jerk, anything with a teriyaki base in your oven overnight at the lowest temp will work with great. as far as learning, you are. p.s. keep looking on the web. www steven raichlen.com

    Grillboy.....

    I used an electric smoker for over 20 years to make jerky. I strongly suggest the CharBroil electric unit you can buy at most big box stores for about $60. It has a VARIBALE temp control....VERY important.

    I now use my Weber Smoky Mountain to dry all my jerky and other veggies. The dehydrator sits idly by.

    Here is my page on making jerky. This is 25 years of jerky tips, techniques and recipes.

    Have fun!

    Stogie, great web page!!! You can bet I'll be looking forward to trying your jerky recipes. I have a chargriller pro smoker to give it a shot, the dehydrator will have to set by for this one. thanks
