My first Smoker

Recommended Posts

I'd go for whole or half chickens - if you ruin them you're only out a few dollars. Lotsa good sites on smokin' out there. Be stingy with the wood - I think most folks think that unless the fire dept shows up you're not using enough grin.gif Smoke after the first couple of hours only serves to build creosote or make the meat too smokey in my opinion, and a small stream from your outlet is really all that is needed.

I'd also start with Boston Butt- may be even have them cut in half if they are too big, you get a bit more 'bark' that way (more suface area) and they have enough fat in them to forgive too high of temps, another error most of us (at least me anyway) made.

Good luck!

I ate my first smoked duck breasts over thanksgiving with the inlaws and man were they good! If you've got any of them around, they'd be worth a try!

Chickens are pretty easy. Buy a couple of the wire stands so they sit up on the grill. I've used rubs and injectors...all are good.

I usually use hickory chunks. Works well with a turkey, too, but that takes all day. Enjoy!

Go for the whole turkey breast. It is big enough to cook a little while and to learn on too. Or try soaking a cheap ham and then putting that on for a few hours.

What temp do you cook your whole chickens at? and for how long? I tried it once and it just turned out OK, but I think my temp was to low.

Turkey legs and pork chops

Cheap and good

I agree with go easy on the wood. To much smoke makes meat bitter.

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
