Always loved smoked food but never wanted to do it since it seemed like such an artform and chore. But a buddy of mine brought over his Brinkmann Bullet style charcoal smoker this past Super Bowl and made some chicken wings with easy preperation...and they blew my mind. So I had to have one. I went out and bought the same model(Red? I did not look at the actual model number) but with the electric option. Before anyone says anything...I know...it's the easy way out but I have a 16 month daughter and sometimes taking time to monitor the coals it too time consuming...so I choose this model. I can do Charcoal as well, which I will use this summer for sure.
So far I have smoked Chicken wings(AMAZING!!!), Ribs(GREAT!) and chicken breat, awful :) - all with Teriayki chips - I am looking forward to perfecting this skill and finding out as much as I can. I plan to smoke something once a week so I will be on here quite often. Next up...Salmon!
Anyway...I look forward to trying all your recipes! If allowed of course.
My first question is...is there anything such as TOO MUCH SMOKE? My wife did not care for the wings...I should say she enjoyed the inside(tender, juicy and subtle smoke) but HATED the skin, which I thought was great. Is there such a thing if so...how do you control this. Less chips? Different Chips?
