Nice! Looks really good. How was the taste and flavour? What smoke and how long with the smoke on? Thanks for sharing the pictures.

After seeing two v-trays in the pictures, I was going to ask if that meant two smokers.  I missed the v-tray sitting on the table.

Now that's some smoking capacity that you've got.  If I start trying to sweet talk SWMBO into another 6 rack, would you be willing to back me up?  Do things like remind her that she enjoys the Canadian Bacon, and the summer sausage, the kielbasa, and the pulled pork?

  hey you bet there ice man i still have your address .. :)

 i usually smoke well for this with me using the blaster i ended up smoking for something 5-6 hours with a temp of 160F.Then stop and don't sample any(try not to anyways) but let it cool down completely and try the next day . I find the cooler it is the better the taste and then if i have to cook longer well use the oven then its faster.I actually add smoke for only 3-4 hours and cook the rest of the time though.

However when using my slicer ... smoke 2-3 hours and cook for a total of 4 hours total in smoker . It will be done then , let it cool over night and then in am chow down .

  for my jerky i just a bout always use mesquite smoke,  then for my salmon i use alder .

That looks great! So you always smoke longer when you use a gun vs cut meat? I was reading recipes off the Bradley site and was wondering if I could use a jerky gun since the recipe says t slice the meat. Any advice would be appreciated.
