    Ok, im sure the type of smoker may influence the dessision, so lets go with what I use. Masterbuilt pro dual fuel two door. I use it as a gasser.

    Hey Mowin

    Well....I'm back to edit this after thinking about it for a short.  I have to admit that smoking pork chops and having them come out tender and juicy seems to be my nemesis.

    So the smaller thinner cuts are more challenging?
  4. Whole hog since nobody smokes whole cows....
  5. I did see on a show once where they did a whole cow. Can't remember if they actually smoked it. I think it was on the show Man Fire Food but don't remember for sure.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    With out a  doubt for me it's brisket..They always come out tasty and tender, but really dry.. Tried many different ways, always the same result. I"m not giving up on brisket,yet.

    Assuming to get it right -

    Easiest:  Pork Butt

    Most Difficult: I'd say Whole Hog is the toughest, but most people are equipment bound and can't do that anyhow.  Now if you are talking competition, I'd say chicken.   But this is generalized, so I'll say brisket

    How's that for a non-committal answer? [​IMG]

    I found that Cheese and Brisket are the most difficult for me.  I have had great luck with whole hogs.
