Too Much Smoke - OD'd - Rookie

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I smoked an 8 pound turkey breast today. Took about 8 hours of tending the smoker. I also did some country styled ribs. 


So I was opening the smoker door more than a few times. To make matters worse, my Maverick probe for my meat malfunctioned. I think I got the damn thing wet when I was cleaning it. 

Can the stupid probe be THAT sensitive that a little water will FUBAR the probe? 


At any rate, I ended up opening the smoker door multiple times during the 8 hours of smoking. 


I think I've OD'd on smoke. I was using cherry wood, so it's not ultra-strong stuff. 


I've done all the dishes, I've taken the garbage out. I've put all the food away, and bathed my whole body. 


I just can't escape the smokey smell. It's getting to me a bit. 


I couldn't even really enjoy my food as the smell was just something I was almost over-come with. 


How do you guys deal with this? 


Is it just rookie-ness on my part?

I do love the smell. 


I love it until I can't get rid of it. 


It seems to be following me around. Infused into my skin.

I only clean my probes with a paper towel and some isopropyl alcohol, I never use water so I don't run any risk of getting water in where the cable attaches to the probe. All they need is a gentle wipe and I never even clean the smoker probe since it will never comes in contact with food.

I love the way I smell after smoking all day!!!

When ya smell like that, go walk around the neighborhood all the puppies want to come and play with you........ how can that be bad?


When I don't have smoke on me, I rub against the rosemary plant to hide the fact I don't have any smoke.
