Hello from New England

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself.  I am Matt from CT and got into smoking about 3 years ago but with two little ones I can't dedicate as much time as I would like but I do get a chance to do alot of reading but just need to be able to do more of the practice I guess I would say.  I have a Smoke Hollow propane smoker as well as a Pit Barrell Cooker.  I guess my biggest question thus far is during  smoke how much of that time do people keep actual smoke rolling and how much time just the low and slow heat.  Read varying opinions and still trying out different things for myself.  Thanks for reading and hope to chat with many of you over time.

Hey Matt,
welcome from another nutmegger. Glad to have you on board. Lots of good folks here and good info. Where are you in CT?
As far as how much smoke..... theres a few factors. First one being how YOU like it. Poultry and fish tend to need a bit less smoke with milder woods. Hunks of beef and pork can take plenty. Just remember that too much can't be reversed. If you put too little you still have good food put know you can add more next time. Just remember to avoid those thick heavy white clouds of smoke for too long. It can make your food inedible.
