Smoking snack sticks--hang em or lay em on the racks??

post #1 of 6

I've only hung em in my MES30, but I always have to cut off a few inches and discard the ends that hang closest to the burner because they are too dried out. Just seeing what everyone else does and if it matters.

I like to hang them because of space.

hang 'em high!, unless you're making 'em case-less, in which case, your options are limited by mixture and gravity!

I hang them over wooden dowels in my MES 40 and I always keep them to the left of the burner so I don't have the burnt ends.

I prefer to hang 'em in the big masterbuilt. To create a heat barrier (from the burner) I used to place a pizza stone on the lowest rungs over the burner. This diffused the heat adequately and prevent scorched or overcooked ends. When this stone was accidentally broken, I've since used a heavy-duty foil-lined pan in its place. It does a good job of catching any potential drippings and really directs the heat around the perimeter of the smoker.

Either way works for me. When I do hang in my MES I do get some burnt ends near the element.
