Hey guys!!!

post #1 of 9

Hey guys, just bought a brinkman propane smoker, I have done some ribs and a pork butt and some salmon. I live in northern Utah, I work for a highend cabinet shop, is it important for the wood the be green? Does it matter if there's bark on your wood? I did the ecourse it was very helpful. O ya my name is Klay.

Welcome, Klay.  I don't use green wood at all.  Green wood will give a heavier flavor and (possibly) give you a creosote problem.  I use only pecan and only a wood burner--never tried electric or propane.  If I'm in a pinch, I will use my bbq grill with briquets and wood chips placed on top.  Bark or no bark is a matter of personal preference.  I don't think it makes much difference one way or the other on the smokes I've done.


Good luck on your smoking!

Welcome to the SMF Family...Green wood is not a good choice. It is difficult to burn and can create foul tasting Creosote...JJ

Thanks guys for the warm welcome. I am glad to see what u think about the green wood. With my work I can get any wood but it will be all dry, so it sound like I have a good source. What do you guys think of the brinkman gas smoker.
