I have a smoking question...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a new (used 4 times Brinkmann TLE offset and I generally food ribs, whole hams ( precooked), chicken, and nothing fancy. With this smoker can I use just wood or will this create a constant smoke and be too much for the meat. Last time I did ribs using a few chunks of wood and mainly lump. I have seen these guys on TV using only wood but wouldnt that would create a constant smoke. I would love to use just wood as it is available to me... Thanks for you help and input.

Hi Bob.

 

There is no reason you can't use a wood fire to cook in that rig if you have splits small enough to fit.  You'll get the best results if you start the fire plenty early, let it burn down to a nice hot bed of coals, then just keep adding 1 split at a time for smoke.

Thanks Red,
I was wondering and needless to say I am new at the offset and would like to use wood instead of buying the lump.
