This forum is a useful tool for getting help with and discussing problems. I want to take a minute to give some positive feedback. I have had my new smokette 020 for almost a week. I have smoked pork butt, brisket, chicken, a little piece of fish, and a whole bunch of jerky. Man, this thing works great. It has been nothing but pleasure. Kudos to the folks at cookshack. I am adjusting to the surprisingly small amount of wood needed for a good smoke. I bought a huge box of hickory. I am going to have to put it in my will because it will last two lifetimes.
