QUICK NEED ADVICE

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I am about to put Pepperoni in the smoker, they are in casings, large like over stuffed polish sausage.  My question is water in the pan or not.  I need some input here.  Thanks in advance

Is your pepperoni cured?  Are you hot or cold smoking?  If hot smoking, then go ahead and put the water pan in -- helps keep temps stable and everything from drying out.  If cold smoking, then it is not necessary.

Made it with TQ and yes I am hot smoking.  So I will put some water in the pan, and I am using Todd's Smoke pellets.  Thanks for the come back.  So many of the recipes don't tell you about the water pan.  Wish someone would post what the standard is with that.  Thanks for the come back

Yes water in the pan, this keeps the casings from getting to dry to fast.

 

like adiochiro said if cold then no water.

Interesting. I thought I read somewhere where you have no water in the pan while drying (1 hour), water in the pan while smoking and then pull the pan to let it go until you reach the required IT.

Help??

I have gone both ways at times here with and without. If my friends dont like the casings i wont use water, this way the casing peels easy from the meat. Mostly with sticks using collagen. (some my friends got no toofes) HA

 

 

I'm fixing to do some SS and will post pics on how i start
