First time smoking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just got a smoker for my birthday, I have a roast marinating over night. Wondering how to get a nice crispy outer skin on the roast?

Happy birthday.  Bark on the meat will occur during the smoking process.  Some rubs with sugar as an ingredent  will also contribute.

What kind of roast do you have ?   As BDSkelly stated, bark will occur during the smoking process IF given enough time.    But, if you are smoking something like a ribeye, top round, or tenderloin roast that you only want to take to mid rare, it won't be in the smoker long enough for a good bark to develop.   With something like that, you'd want to smoke first and then finish with a reverse sear to get a nice crust.

Good advice from above post
