I just bought an electric smoker and will be using it on an upcoming weekend.
I have a few noob questions: Is it fine to smoke many different types of meats at once? I wanted to try a combination (ribs, sausages, turkey drumsticks, slab of bacon, beef, etc.). What would be the best temp/time for all this?
Also, my smoker does have water pan, but I've heard of people using apple juice instead of water. Does this make a noticeable difference?
Finally, how do usually soak the wood chips? I've heard that you should soak the smaller ones but leave some of the larger ones unsoaked. Is this true?
