New Braunfels offset smoker

Discussion in 'Other Builds' started by tracyjoe, Jul 3, 2013.

  1. I have had a New Braunfels smoker for some time now. I get great results with Boston Butts. Should I not cook with just wood on this thing or what am I doing wrong. Sometimes meat comes out too smokey and sometimes bitter. Are these not meant to cook with just wood? Maybe I should cook with charcoal and just add a little wood for flavor. I wonder all the time how people cook with just wood but don't get an overbearing smoke flavor.

    One of the stick burners on here can help more then I can but you do get to get a good hot clean fire going before putting the meat on.

    I seen a video on how to use a wood burner. I will see if I can find it and will post it here when I do.

    Tracy, evening and welcome to the forum.....   You can burn the wood until it gets to coals and then add splits...   Smoking over coals provides a well smokes product.....   Briquettes work well for heat and splits add smoke flavor...   

    Please take a moment and stop into " /Roll Call/   " and introduce yourself and get a proper welcome from our members....   

    We're glad you stopped in and joined our group...    Enjoy the long smokey ride....     Dave
