I just got a Traeger last summer with a Smoke Daddy attachment. This is the lazy man's smoker...just set it and forget it. I've been busy learning the fine art of smoking. I've watched dozens of videos on YouTube that have been very helpful. I found out the hard way that trying to use the Traeger in cold weather was a bad idea so now that it's warming up I'm ready to get going again.
I've got the ribs and pork butts down to what is perfection to me but nothing else. The pulled pork is like crack cocaine to me. I did a couple of turkeys for Thanksgiving as an experiment. I figured if they didn't turn out I could feed them to the dog at 39 cents a pound. I used a modified brine recipe that I found on the HEB YouTube Channel. The turkeys turned out tender, moist and sweet...literally sweet with a smokey flavor. I made lots of friends with those birds. My dog got a Costco roasted chicken.
I've ruined a brisket or two so I'm doing something wrong. That really hurt my feelings so I need professional counseling for that. I'll be searching the site for tips and tricks from the veterans.
