Master built electric 30 smoker

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I got a master built 30 electric smoker for Christmas this year. So far I've mqde ribs about 3 or 4 times and they always turn out perfectly. But when I do a roast in there I don't get a bark on the roast like I did when I bbq it or like I see on YouTube videos. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I fill waterfowl up at bottom. I'm cooking at 235. The vent is about 1/2 to 2/3 open at top. I add wood every 2 hours. I use same rub I do on bbq. But when its in smoker it either seems to just absorb into meat or disappear or just dry up like powder(if I do beef roast). Any tips would be great. Really want to figure it out. Like I said. Ribs turn out perfect every time. But not roasts. Here's the pork shoulder I did today. Haven't tasted it yet. But not happy with look of it.

The problem is the water pan is creating steam and doesn't allow for good bark formation. Try filling the water pan w/ clean sand and cover it w/ foil when you want to do long smokes on big cuts of meat.
