I trolled on here a while back, trying to get some information about an electric smoker I was looking at.
Now, I thought I'd join and start trying to use that smoker better. I'm tired of sub par results, so i thought I would see if I could get some better results by joining.
I'm in Minnesota.
I have been smoking meats for years. I started out with a propane smoker that between me and my parents, we burned out. Then I got a charcoal smoker that I had been using for a couple years. I got pretty good results with the charcoal smoker. I did mostly ribs and tri tips, but also did some hocks and some other things. I've smoked some birds as well.
I recently got a Boulder Creek Electric smoker from Sams (around Christmas). I am still learning how to use this thing, but I am not having good results. On this, I have done Tri tips, ribs and pheasant.
Most of my results have ended up not having a smoke ring, no or very little smoky flavor, and with the ribs, occasionally dry.
