Condensation prevention
« on: August 03, 2022, 08:43:36 PM »
I know this sounds silly, but has anyone tried attaching an air line to the drain of the smoker and use an air pump to blow a bit more air through the smoker to help keep the sausage drier while smoking? Don't make fun of me now........🤔😁😁

Would that be in lieu of or in addition of the James Jerky Dryer?  Just curious!

Hey Sarge. I was thinking in lieu of. I would use a drip pan to catch any liquid, although with sausages or jerky, I don't think there should be much. Since the smoker is sealed pretty tight, the pumped in air should exit right out of the top. Using an aquarium pump like the one on the Bella, the air flow would be easy to regulate. I have an extra pump from my Smoke Daddy that I can try. I'll just stick the air line in the drain hole, seal around it with some tape and see how she works. Just a kooky idea.  👍
