First Post, First Smoke!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I'm steve. I'm an engineer from southern ontario, in canada. I have a cheap little japanese knock off of a weber grill that i got just to try charcoal. Did a bit of BBQing with it and enjoyed it. So today I tried my first smoke. It was with a 2.5 lbs soup chicken. I know.. not the best starting point. I also don't have a meat thermometer, but i plan on getting one before I'd do it again.

I brined it for 2 hours, then smoked it for 2.5 hours. The extra virgin olive oil i used before the dry rub burned a little, next time I think i'll go with a regular canola oil.

The result? Spectacular! The meat was moist, tender and flavorful. The temps varied a bit on me, but all around stayed pretty good.

I re-oiled it every 45 minutes or so.

Welcome aboard. I've done lots of smokes on my Weber Kettle. It can turn out some great q if you've got the patience. I don't use one but several members have talked about the Smokenator. Here's a link if you're interested...
