    How's it going....I'm fairly new to the smoking world. I've used my gas Smokey Mountain smoker four times now and I'm looking to smoke for our group on our float trip. I'm thinking about a brisket, ribs and maybe a pork loin. Any concerns about the mixed types of meat? Smoking time I'm kind of confused about also. Any advise would be appreciated.

    Brisket is a long cook...not sure you would have the time or propane for that on a float trip.
    Ribs about 4-5 hour cook depending smoking temp - baby backs less time.

    I have never really smoked on your smoker and I'm not quite sure how much you can haul on your boats.
    How long is your trip going to be?

    I've smoked a brisket in 7 hours before and it turned out good. We're not taking the smoker with us I'm starting it before we leave and it should be done by the time we get back. At least that's the plan.

    When you said float trip I was assuming you was talking multiple days by boat/kayak.
    I wouldn't want to do a brisket without somebody watching it. To much stuff can go wrong....delays on the water etc.

    I wouldn't want to leave that much meat unattended for that long a time. 

    Especially since they all have different cook times.

    It would be hard enough to get them timed right so they all finish together watching over them constantly.

    I did a kind of dry run with the water gas and wood before with a brisket. About 6 hours and I didn't have to add anything. But yeah little nervous about not being there to even check. I was thinking maybe if I go with the temp at 200 instead of 235 it might help not sure tho.
