We were playing a game of pick up in a suburban neighborghood, when Michael Jordan stepped onto the playground and silenced everyone.....(but arturo)







To say that cooked meat can't retain smoke is preposterous.

It may be better to do it the other way, but I get great results either way.

If they only retain smoke in the first hour or 2, why smoke meat for 12 hours?

Waste of chips? I doubt it.

I agree and here is my example from a couple weeks ago

Cooking in a smoker or actually smoke for 12 hours? Smoke after the first couple hours is pointless but keeping it at that temp is important. Many smokers don't need to make hardwood smoke in order to cook.

Good answer dataz722.

For chicken wings or Pork loin(not for pulled but cooked until just barely done) I will still smoke the whole time.

For ribs or BBQ, I will consider smoking first.

Really the reason to oven first, is so that the inside of the house doesn't smell like smoke. (I have a SWMBO or I wouldn't care)

That looks awesome, Sawdustguy. I can't get a consistent brisket to save my life, I'm going to try some of your tips. I especially like the white vs blue smoke comment.

I understand that completely. It is the reason I keep it on the smoker the whole time. I have a UDS and just add about 2 fist sized chunks of wood. They only last about 5-6 hours probably. The charcoal is what does the cooking.

More than likely. I did the same thing. I ordered the sample and as soon as I used it, ordered the 2 lb bag.
