I have been smoking exclusivly with pecan wood for the past 3 years. Great flavor, but my smoker oozes this black tar looking gunk that drips on the meat and I don't like it much.
Should I revert back to using charcoal with wood chips.
Also, I use 2 cake pans under the meat with a little water in them for drip pans. Is the water causing some of the issue?
