Hi all. My name is Chuck and I live in Oakdale CA. I've been BBQing for awhile, but I want to try and get some experience with smoking. I have a Traeger Lil Tex and a Big Green Egg. As I'm typing this, I have a Tri Tip in the fridge and plan on smoking it tomorrow. I put a rub on it yesterday and It's in a marinade now. (This is an experiment; hence the marinade).
I want to try smoking it tomorrow on the Traeger and cook at around 200 degrees. My thinking is, if I keep the heat below boiling, (212 degrees), It wouldn't lose too much moisture. Have any of you folks done this and if so, how did it turn out? Also, is there anything I can do to get more of a smoky flavor? I love the Traeger for its ease of use, but it's not known for imparting great smoke.
Thanks for any and all answers and I plan on spending a lot of time on this Forum.
