    Default Speaking of BBQ

    My neighbors are doing pork in their smoker today and I'm a little
    jealous! Guess it's time to start looking for a smoker to purchase. I
    think they have this one: http://tinyurl.com/35fslu9

    I have had some brisket that they made in it and it was divine. Made my
    oven roasted brisket pale in comparison.

    I have the Great Outdoors Smoky Mountain from WalMart. It is propane and
    gets hotter than any electric and is more useful in cooler climates. It is
    a good bang for the buck if you don't want to spend for a Klose or similar.

    The green (non-electric, charcoal powered) version is much better.
    That's what I use.

    If you want a decent electric smoker, you have to pay at least $200.
    Even better, the propane assisted smokers for $150.

    I have one like that but it isn't electric. I use lump charcoal. It
    makes wonderful pork butts and briskets.

    Ed's recommendation is a good one, this is a similar style of pit that I'm
    familiar with (link to Amazon):

    I've had that exact Brinkman electric smoker for about three years now,
    works very well but is a real problem to clean. To clean it I have
    learned to pressure wash the housing and lid every six months to get the
    creosote off, the water pan and grates get rinsed well and run through
    the dishwasher every time I use it.

    So far I've done chickens, brisket, pork butt, ham, turkey, and both
    spare and baby back ribs. Does a really good job. So good I bought one
    for my SIL's birthday this year, He, too, is pleased with it. Plus it is
    sold at a reasonable price.

    Thanks...I think we'll end up with it too. My neighbors use it every
    other day, I swear and they say it works like a dream. I wish I could
    afford one of the others but I can't. This will work for now and with
    military discount at home depot it's 60 buckaroos.

    One of the nurses I work with is married to a bbq aficionado. Around
    holidays they'll take orders for brisket, pork butts and turkeys. He
    also does those competition type BBQ weekend events with a team.
    The week of Thanksgiving we ordered up a brisket with a huge bottle of
    his sauce ($35), and one each pork butt and turkey ($25 each).
    Amazingly good brisket. I cut everything up to keep some for eating
    during the week, sending to the kids houses and a little in the freezer.

    They have a nice little side biz going on among friends and cow-orkers.

    Wash a smoker? A stiff brush to the hot grates before use it all it
    needs. Sometimes you may need to brush off loose particles from the
    inside of the lid, but pressure wash?

    Most people don't wash smokers except for burning the grates. And I
    use foil in the water pan so all I do is lift off the foil and throw
    it away.

    I can smoke fish pretty close to perfection using my Weber kettle.
    So, I don't consider this a real drawback of a smoker, for
    amateur use anyway.

    Careful! Once you start, you'll never go back. <g>

    I have an offset pit and now that I've finally installed a temp gauge
    and purchased a proper meat thermometer, I've been using it a lot more
    as the results have improved!

    I use deadfall wood so it costs me next to nothing to operate.

    According to the posts that you make, you can't do anything right. You get
    too hung up on YOUR word definitions, whether the definitions are right or
    just yours. Nothing that you type should be taken as anything more than it
    is, entertainment or plain old BULL ****

    Yes, I'm the only one here who likes it, so if I want it I'll obtain it
    elsewhere. I'd like to do simple things, like ribs and pork butts.
    Maybe chickens and small turkeys.

    Does that tastes as good as other woods? Here all I'm gonna find is
    pine and sweetgum. maybe oak.
