I just bought an electric smoker and tried smoking johnsonville brats on it. In order to get smoke, I had to set the heat to med. high, which brought the temp to about 220 F. I left the brats on there for about 2 1/2 hours.
What a mess. The brats dripped grease and tasted 'pasty'. Like elmers glue. Did I smoke too hot? Too long? I heard meat has to be cooked at least 260 deg. F for 1 hour.
