Smoking Ground Meat

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So tonight my daughter gave me the idea to add smoke to our Sloppy Joes, which sounds like a helluva an idea to me!

Now for the part that stumps me.....

Do I cook the ground burger first and then throw it on the smoker, or do I smoke the meat first and then cook it?

What smoker or cooker do you have?


I can get mine hot enough to smoke/ cook.

Oklahoma Joes offset.

Do you smoke and chop up the meat at the same time? Just wondering if the fat cooking out would take the smoke flavor with it when I drain the meat.

How hot can you get it?    I would smoke and chop at the same time.  I would think around 275 to 350 would work good.

I'd make it all the way on the smoker,just stir it up once in awhile when sauced.

When I do them I just make one big patty & smoke it, then add it to the sloppy joe mix.
