I gave my self a early Birthday Present of a Smoke Vault 24 this weekend after lurking here for several months. Yesterday I seasoned it with a 3 hour run of hickory and a slight mist of oil.
Today I smoked two beer can chickens and about 10 thighs with great results for a first go at it. Everything was very moist and had a nice mild flavor. I used a 50/50 mix of hickory and apple chips and straight apple juice in the water pan.
Things I will do different next time, I want a bit more kick out of my rub then the Spade L Ranch that I used, and I think I will inject to get a bit more flavor as getting the rub under the skin with out tearing it with my big paws is hard to do! I also think I'm going to do a combo of chunks and chips.
I want to thank all the members of this sight, you inspired me to take up yet another form of cooking!
