Chicken and Kale.
Iâ€™ll need recommendations for good smokers.
Oh you poor bastard. You can do up kale like collards. Ain't the same, but it is the most bearable way to do kale. That and Maus (mouse)... A dutch dish we do that is kale cut up fine, fried a touch and added to mashed potatoes with garlic salt ad too much butter.
For chicken and such, a barrel house cooker...
It's a hot cooker, but fine for chicken with a hat full of charcoal (or wood embers) in the bottom. Works as a grill too... I think around $300 will buy one. I wouldn't know. It is no real magic, and I always make my own out of a 55 gal drum.
If you want to go at it for reals, pellet smokers are all the rage in the suburbs I hear. my real smoker is an old refrigerator, but it's about burned out now.
Ain't got nothing fancy for cold smoke... I use a Dakota fire hole with a chimney pipe sending the smoke over to a slapped together teepee smoker... That's how all my fish go through.
