I started smoking the first batch of venison pepper and cheese summer sausage tonight.
Only did a 5# test batch to see how it turns out.
I bought an electric planer to make chips from smoking wood. I made 5# of apple and cherry chips with it, so it is half payed for already.
I am using the barrel propane smoker I built last fall. Nothing fancy on the smoke generator, just wood chips in a foil pack and swap them out every 45 minutes.
