How To Smoke Turkey Meat At Hunting Camp

There are a number of great ways to smoke Turkey Meat right there at hunting camp and here are a few ideas to get you smoking

It’s pretty obvious that it would be very difficult to smoke meat at camp using electricity since this means that you will have to be tied to the grid in order to run an outdoor electric smoker or burn up your favorite generator or another camp members generator which could lead to in-camp fighting if you try to challenge a demand to replace the burnt turkey and burnt generator as well , the Turkey having been burnt while you were wrongfully fighting over whether or not running a generator out of oil for 8 hours was your fault or not – which it would be whether you think so or not because smoking meat at camp is not worth burning up a good generator and does not prioritize the use of a generator for that use plus the turkey probably would not taste to good by then having been saturated in a oil residue with a burnt wire spiced seasoning blue green fluorescent glow in the dark patina .

Now if you have a 12 panel solar array to power up a Tesla power wall and can draw enough current to run a smoker all day then that’s another story as it would probably work but by that time you might as well be at home watching football and drinking beer and smoking you Turkey at home because hunting’s for hunters not Glamper’s -{ Glamor Campers }.

Your Going To Need A Few Things To Get Started at Building a Meat Smoker At Camp

This is unless you plan on bringing a portable smoker down to the camp with you. If not you need to prepare a means of doing this and a few other things to put on a list.

  • Is your smoker going to be permanent year-round heavy-duty built-in place bombproof as well as bear-proof smoker?
  • Is it going to be portable but just around camp. If so plan the construction of it to have skids but make them extra large so that it will not blow over in the wind or fall over as you drag it to a new location?
  • Beware of the type of wood you use, don’t use pressure-treated other than the bottom structure of smoker.
  • Choose the wood needed for the smoker to ensure it does not ignite. A hardwood, not a poplar, or any softwoods as they may ignite if any embers get inside.
  • Hickory would be good but not from an 18 wheeler as you do not know if they were transporting the nuclear waste or not but this would make you easy to find in the dark if you happen to get lost.
  • Building the smoker on the ground is not a good idea as you will come back the next hunting season to find that a bear has torn it to bits and taken a really big dump inside and bear crap’s not on any list I know of as being a good meat smoker seasoning but you never know it might taste great, nice and earthy like essence and if you take it to a barbecue contest you just might win a new smoker.

    Building a meat smoker at camp can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it requires careful planning and preparation. Before you start constructing your smoker, you need to consider several important factors, including the type of smoker you want, the materials you will need, and the location where you will build it.

    If you plan on building a permanent, year-round smoker that can withstand extreme weather conditions and deter bears, you will need to invest in heavy-duty materials and construction techniques. This may include using thick metal walls, reinforced doors, and sturdy locks. You will also need to make sure that your smoker is anchored securely to the ground to prevent it from tipping over or blowing away in high winds.

    On the other hand, if you want a portable smoker that you can easily move around camp, you will need to focus on making it lightweight and easy to transport. This may involve using skids or wheels to help you move it from place to place. You should also consider using materials that are durable but lightweight, such as aluminum or thin steel.

    When it comes to choosing the wood for your smoker, you need to be very careful. Avoid using pressure-treated wood, as it can release toxic chemicals when heated. Instead, opt for hardwoods like hickory or oak, which are ideal for smoking meat. Softwoods like pine or spruce should be avoided, as they can ignite easily and create unwanted smoke.

    When building your smoker, be sure to elevate it off the ground to prevent animals from getting inside. Bears are notorious for breaking into smokers, so take extra precautions to keep them out. You may want to consider installing bear-proof locks or constructing a bear-proof enclosure around your smoker to keep unwanted visitors out.

    Finally, remember to keep safety in mind at all times when building your smoker. Always wear protective gear like gloves and safety glasses when working with power tools or handling hot materials. Keep a fire extinguisher on hand in case of emergencies, and make sure your smoker is always supervised when in use. With a little bit of planning and preparation, you can build a smoker that will last for years and provide delicious smoked meat for all your camping trips.
