A Sunday Smoke with Q-view

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I started off Sunday with a Tri Tip, ABT's and Jamaican Jerk Sausage smoked in Apple Wood.  I've been focused on trying to learn how to use a smoker, that I haven't put the time into learning how to make the rubs, or how much to use on the meat.




Here's my assistant making sure I didn't leave anything in the dish








After about 5 hours




The final product




The Tri Tip was OK, not the full flavor I wanted.  I must not be using enough rub.  I'm almost out of Apple wood, but I live in an area surrounded by Almond and Apricot orchards, so I may have to make frinds with a few of the farmers.


The ABT's disappeared as quick as the first few came out, and the Sausage tasted good, but I'll try something different next time.  I get my sausage from Wolfsens in Gustine, CA.  There web address is


Any tips you can give me on making my final product, would be appreciated.

It looks good sorry your thread was hung up in moderation so long we are having some problems approving them

Looks pretty good to me...


What was missing in the flavor that you wanted?


Hickory will give more of a stronger smoke flavor than apple will.

What I'm trying for is more flavor in the meat.  I've been reading, and am going to marinate the next one, then give it a rub before smoking.  I will pick up some hickory chips at Lowes.  I also have to work on extending the smoke stack out from under my patio cover.  Inside the house it smelled like smoke for 3 days even though the doors and windows where closed while I was smoking.

Looks fine from here !


Smoke in the house ! 


The women hate that !


Personally I think it smells better than flowers or air fresheners!
