What is the best smoke temp?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Guys and Gals and all you MeatHeads......

      What is the best temp to absorb smoke in meat?  I read an article that said the best temps for absorbing smoke, was LOW. I gathered that the Longer your meat stayed Wet or Moist, the longer it absorbed. It said that if you throw the meat on a 300 degree cooker the meat COOKS and hardens the outside of the meat, making it hard to absorb smoke......

I don't know about temp but I do believe a moist surface helps smoke penetration and a dry surface locks in the internal moisture of the meat.

Just to be clear, I did not write that article, it was written by forluvofsmoke (Eric), he has quite a few articles and threads on here describing this method and many other threads that go into great detail and are full of a lot of education for anyone who is wanting to step up their game! I have learned so much from him and I suggest to anyone who wants to learn more to give Eric a read, you won't regret it!
