View Full Version : How hot should the smoker be?

I'm building a smoker for my fish but don't know how hot it needs to be. I turned on the burner in the empty box and got it up to 125. I'm sure when full it will get some hotter.

Any ideas? [smiley=margarita.gif]

It depends on whether you want to cold smoke or hot smoke your fish. All you really need for hot smoking is 150 degrees. In 3-4 hr everything will be done. For cool smoking for long periods of time, less than 100 degrees is best.
