Hey y'all, new to SMF

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Name is Randy, 25, from Kansas.

 

Received a new Brinkmann Electric Smoke-n-grill for Christmas, already had a little fun with it but have come to talk with y'all and ask for some advice.

 

Smoked an already cooked Spiral Cut Sliced Ham, used a sweet and spicy pepper glaze on the ham.  Used Apple wood chips around the heating element with limited success, not sure if it was the product or user error but I just didn't see much smoke from the chips. The ham turned out OK, could have been better.

 

Smoked Porkburgers and chicken wings using some Pecan chunks.  The burgers had a nice smoke ring and stayed reasonably moist.  The chicken wings were darn good.  Put a little dry rub on there and smoked them for 2 hours, then finished on the propane grill to get a little crispy.  Tossed some in Franks/Butter. The wings were tender and pulled right off the bone, very popular.

 

Thinking of Smoking a Pork loin, shoulder, and/or ribs this weekend, any and all advice for this greenhorn is welcomed and appreciated. 

 

Thanks,

 

Randy
