Smoking in Pittsburgh

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by jrsully77, Jun 8, 2007.

  1. I’m new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jon and I am new to smoking but have consumed some of the best food from my brother-in-laws smoker. I just purchased a Meco charcoal water smoker and am planning on smoking a chicken this weekend.

    Welcome Jon -

    There are two schools of thought on chickens

    1 Brining and injecting
    2 Beer Can in the butt

    I've done it both ways and I prefer brining and injecting. It get the flavor inside the meat as well as outside.

    Good Luck!
     
  9. Hi Jon! I’m from Pittsburgh too! Welcome!
    Lots of times, I see those good deals on chicken thighs (99¢/lb) and I smoke up a tray or two. Talk about good meat for chicken salad, or oriental or just eating cold! Or smoke them and freeze them for later. Mmmmm, smoked thighs!
