Getting a smoker.
« on: August 02, 2018, 06:04:01 PM »
It'll be an electric. Don't @ me; it's a matter of convenience.

Anyhoo…

Next weekend will be the inaugural smoking. Any suggestions for cut of meat, rub recipes, helpful tips, etc.?

We got an electric smoker fathers day weekend and have used it twice so far to cook a brisket and the meat has come out perfect.

I have zero complaints with an electric smoker....make sure you get the one that lets you add wood chips to give what you're smoking flavor.

As far as marinades...here's my favorite whether I'm using an electric or wood smoker:

Only have done a pork shoulder on it so far...came out great.

Sgt Bunny...try ribs or a pork butt or shoulder first...they're easy and there are lots of recipes.

Oh.

I thought you were adopting/marrying someone who likes their cigars.

I got an electric last winter. Been doing a lot of chicken with good results, brine it first. Did my first tri tip a month or so ago, my wife insisted I do another the following weekend!
With the chicken , after brining I pat it dry then rub it down with EVOO. Then use a store bought seasoning rub. I also like to stuff the bird with root veggies. I like Apple or Cherry chips for the chicken.
The tri tip I use hickory, smoke for 2 plus hours then wrap in foil with a few pats of butter and brown sugar. Back in the smoker for a few more hours till it hits 195 internal temp.
I just got a portable gas mini smoker to, will use it while camping.

The mini smoker did great. Cornish game Hens for 4 hours @ 225. Perfect.
