Howdy from a fellow Oregonian! This is a great site with a ton of knowledge. Don't be afraid to ask questions. The search feature here works great. Be sure and show off your smokes!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!  I've had the chance to cure and break in my new off set smoker last week with minor success.


The first attempt was a "Mortons" Tri-Tip cut from Costco (where I work) that we've had in the past and have always thought they were pretty darn good. However in the smoker at around 200-225 for 6 hours it didn't turn out as I was expecting. I was thinking it would just fall apart and that wasn't the case. It turned out very tough and I couldn't even tear through it :th_crybaby2:The flavor was pretty good considering all I used was the Kinsford Competition Briquettes. It looked amazing but in this case looks were deceiving.


I did do some chicken quarters  that turned out decent (skin was tough and tasted like an ash tray) but I will definitely be brining a whole bird next time. I'm hoping to get some apple wood from a local u pick orchard this year that our family frequents. Hopefully someone else doesn't have the same idea!


Any tips on the Tri-Tip would be much appreciated!
