Maiden Voyage On The Bandera - Page 2

post #21 of 32
Darn Mikey that is some really good looking chow. Just curious; how was the taste compared with what you're used to? I personally found burning all wood had a better flavor than lump charcoal with wood added on the uds.

Rick, I can honestly say that the taste of everything that came off of this smoker was definately head & shoulders above what I've grown accustomed to. Since I'm my own worst critic, what was conveyed to me by the "wench" confirmed it & sealed the deal. I did my best to just add wood, but a couple of times I let the temps get a bit too low. Had to add some lump to get it goin', then kept feeding it wood when it was needed. I'm looking forward to the next time I can fire it up again biggrin.gif

Erain, admitedly I was very skeptical at first having only known the wattburners. And yes, they do turn out some fine smokes and have served me faithfully for almost a year now. From my own personal experience, I would have to (humbely) say that there is a remarkable difference in taste. While this smoker did keep me on my toes, like I said earlier the fun factor was off the chart.

Pretty much my findings also. I have a couple of people that really didn't like smoked meat and when they took a taste of the Q coming off the Horizon while burning all wood they were surprised on how good it was. Both of the non smokers are now converted.
