The Smoker You Drink the Player You Get?

Ah, so now that I have a few minutes, I hear all this jabber about smokers on here and say to myself, "Self, maybe I should look into one of these things." I've seen the Weber smokers in the FF ads but seems like I wasn't in a buying mood at the time. More interested perhaps in seeing what kind of doo dads I could put on the Studebaker to attract unsuspecting 80 and 90 year old grandma's who used to actually drive a car like that. Maybe put a box of Depends or some Poligrip in the front seat? ;) Not sure what direction to go and maybe there's already a Smoking 101 thread started for newbies like me so be gentle; it's my first time.  :D

My opinion would be to get a electric smoker.  Masterbuilt or Bradley smokers would be a good item.  They are easy to operate and digital for easy time and temp settings.  Plus electric smokers are dependable for keeping temps steady.  These smokers are insulated also.  You can get models in  the 30 inch or 40 inch in these brands depending on how much you want to smoke at one time.  Perfect for a family.  good luck.

I wonder if I could post the mp3 of bobcat talking about granny porn.  Spit coffee out your nose funny, but I don't want to go in penalty box....

So far as smokers go, I have the smoky mountain by weber, but many folks seem to have the dedicated smokers by masterbuilt etc.  I bet one of those tubes with the pellets and a weber kettle or gas grill would do the job.

Um, you could p.m. me del. I don't think you'd get a time out for that. Ya I only have 3 Webers: a Smokey Joe, my 35 year old original model I keep together with baling wire and spare garage sale parts as well as the Performer I bought as a gift to myself for officially becoming an old fart. Maybe something would work.

I have a Masterbuilt smoker that died on me and I found a great deal on a Green Mountain Pellet Grill last week. I haven't smoked much on it yet but it works awesome for a grill. My buddy has a Treager and talked me into a pellet grill. I am looking forward to smoke some ribs and pork butt on it. I plan on tearing the Masterbuilt apart and find the wiring short and fix it because I really liked it too. Doesn't hurt to have two anyway but I would recommend the pellet grill. Its as easy as the electric and holds temp just as good and gets up to temp. faster.

For making roasts, turkeys, ribs and the like I like my Weber 18" Smokey Mountain. For jerky and sausage I bought a Bluetooth controlled Masterbuilt 40" 6 rack that they make for Cabelas and use an AMNPS for a smoke generator. For cold smoking I built a little WSM out of a Smokey Joe. It works well for smoking peppers from the garden.

by a cheap Masterbuilt electric.  You just set the thing and can go about your day, sometimes I just add some wood pellets at the beginning and it smokes for long enough where you don't need to do anything until the meat's done.  A smoker and a temp probe can make smoking meat about one of the easiest things to make you could imagine.  

People think you're a cooking genius but there's nothing to it.  All you need is time.

LL nailed it.... a cheap masterbuilt will make people think you've been smoking meat for 20-30 years. Throw some wood in, tell it what temp and how long you want it to cook.

Then, if you have time check on it if you feel like it. The smoker does all of the work.

    • I thought of a few possibilities that might work.     1.  You need like 1/8th inch of shim.   get some aluminum or plastic strips 1/8 thick and see how that plus the double layer of vinyl, fills the gap.    2. They sell t-shaped plastic, or better yet, aluminum molding.   Cover the gap with that and some silicone to hold it. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Schluter-Systems-0-344-in-W-x-98-5-in-L-Aluminum-Commercial-Residential-Tile-Edge-Trim/4328907?cm_mmc=SCE_PLA_ONLY-_-Flooring-_-SosCeramics-_-4328907:Schluter_Systems&CAWELAID=&kpid=4328907&CAGPSPN=pla&k_clickID=2b7019f3-3c90-4cfe-b281-03c39be7f0e2 (quick google search) example. Might even come in colors.   The siding guys use that stuff too.     3. Put it all together and run a bead of silicone down the seam, in a color that sort of matches the vinyl.    That's all I got.      
    • My state started stocking saugeye in some of our lakes a few years ago, and I'd like to target them. I've caught plenty of walleyes, but never a saugeye (or sauger either for that matter). Do you use different techniques for saugeye than you do for walleye, or do you basically fish for them the same way?

    • Update   I was able to get an extension kit from Tim's Outboard! Couldn't believe it, I checked all over the internet and local shops and NOBODY had the right one for my motor, but Tim's was able to dig one up. It was a great price too, much less than I expected to pay. They shipped it out to me and I'll be installing it on Sunday. Thanks to swamptiger for the suggestion!
    •    Whether, for examples, it's the Trumper's silence, and sometimes support of, his proposed stimulus spending after opposing BHO's, or war protesters largely absent while BHO intervenes in the Middle East after 6 years of massive protest marches when GWB did, or this story, I guess it's up to the observer to decide how much of this so called outrage you've seen in the last several decades has been really based on true principles or just party politics. The press has promised to scrutinize Trump. Great. I expect that. The problem is they've lost their credibility with the rabble so the rabble are left with trying to figure out which institution is telling the truth or pulling our legs   I suppose the one positive to come from the Trump presidency is the left will now become concerned with things like fiscal responsibility, Executive Branch overreach, and interventionism in the Middle East. Not that I wouldn't welcome their  conversions once again to the aforementioned issues after taking a hiatus the last 8 years. But, better late than never, I guess
