"Great product.
I have cooked a prime rib roast and other cuts in my smoker. I love it.
I recently bought the rib hooks and the cart to go with my model 1400. I am extremely pleased with the quality and the results.
But on the other hand what should I have expected but excellence from a product out of the great state of Texas? 
Thanks for the pleasure I am getting from using the SmokinTex!

Smoked Venison         
1 venison ham
1/2 cup chopped garlic, or use whole garlic pieces, as many as you like
1/2 cup sliced jalapenos, right out of the jar, or use fresh sliced if you like
Suckle Busters Hoochie Mama BBQ Rub from SmokinTex
1 cup of red wine that tastes good to you 
Non-stick spray or olive oil
1/2 pound bacon
1 sharp knife
4 ounces hickory wood, or wood of choice
4 ounces cherry  wood, or wood of choice
1 or 2 pieces of charcoal, DO NOT USE BRIQUETS

With the knife, cut numerous slots about 1 inch long on both sides of the ham.
Insert the garlic into the holes.  If using chopped garlic, a small teaspoon is very helpful.
Insert 1 or 2 slices of jalapeno into each hole to hold the garlic in place.
Rub a generous amount of Hoochie Mama all over both sides of the ham. WARNING: It is a bit warm, but rather mild for those who like stuff HOT.
Place bacon strips across the ham, then repeat end to end. 
Use cooking spray or olive oil on cooking rack.
Load wood box with the charcoal and the remaining space with equal amounts of hickory and cherry, or woods of choice.
Insert ham into smoker and set temperature to 225F.
Make sure the smoker is out of the wind and out of the sun. Wind pulls the heat out the vent, slowing cook time.
Sun on the cooker increases the internal temp by 15+ degrees and shortens the cook time.
Cook the ham for 3 hours.
With 15 minutes remaining on the smoker, preheat oven to 300F. Prepare tin foil large enough to completely wrap the ham.  If splicing the foil to make a larger piece, make sure seams are anywhere except on the bottom.
Place the foil in a pan large enough to contain the ham.
At the 3 hour mark, remove the ham from the smoker and place on the foil, pulling the foil upward around the edges on all sides. Be careful and do not puncture the foil.
Pour as much of the wine into the foil wrapper as you like.  If any remains, drink it.
Close the foil packet by folding all edges into a tight seam on top and on the ends.
Place ham into preheated oven. Cook for 3 hours.
Remove ham from oven, open foil and let set for 15 minutes prior to eating.
The meat should fall off the bone.
Use your favorite BBQ sauce and ENJOY!
Warning: failure to like what you have just smoked will require a taste bud transplant!
