    Al, I seen references to your lox recipe / technique and as I am expecting my amazn smoker any day now, I could use that advice. But unfortunatly, I can’t find it. Can you direct me? While a long time hot smoker of birds, cows, calves, and lambs I have no experience in cold smoking fish. Any guidance, advise will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Hi Al. Question if I may. I posted the same on one of the threads but I thought I'd contact you direct. I'm thinking of using you IT method for the ribs but I want to ask: If I smoke (Traeger) at 180 rather than the normal 225, do you think the lower temperature would dry out the ribs? I want to try the 180 because with the Traeger, I get more smoke at that temp. Thanks Al

    Al,
    Have you ever tried smokin ribs to an internal temperature of 180 and then holding that IT for some period of time (1 hr, 2 hr, etc) time to see if they are more moist and as tender than bringing them up to 195? Just wondering if you have ever already tried that.
    Just thinking,
    Joe

    No Joe I have never tried that.
    But I think it may be hard to hold them at a specific temp for that long, unless it was in a SV machine.

    Al, Help,

    Hi SmokinAl, is it safe to use galvanized duct for a cold smoker pipe to bring smoke to my smoker?
    SmokinAl
    SmokinAl
    In a short answer, yes it is safe. I use galvanized stove pipe for cold smoking bacon. I'll see if I can send you a photo of my setup.

    Good morning Al!
    How do I find recipes anymore?

    Randy,

    The only way I know is with the search function.
    When I open my smoker to put the meat in I lose a tremendous amount of heat. When do I start the cook time? Once it's up to the temp I want, or as soon as it goes in? I'm smoking my baby backs today and am not sure what to do.

    I don't cook my ribs by time, I go by internal temp. 195 is tender & juicy, 200-205 is fall off the bone. If your cooking by time I would start it when the ribs go in the smoker. If your cooking at 225, get the smoker up to 275-300. Then put the ribs in. Hopefully the temp won't drop much below 225.

    Hi Al. Question if I may. I thought that I would try smoking the ribs at a lower temperature 180. I've always smoked the ribs at 225 and I'm going to try and use your method for the IT of 195. Do you think the extended smoke time t the lower temp will dry out the ribs or should I stick with the 225. I'm using a Traeger and the 185 offers a lot more smoke. Thanks Al

    I'm look to find out the best way to get the smokey taste in a top serloin . And how long I should smoke it to get that taste.
    SmokinAl

    If you want more smoky flavor run your smoker at around 200 degrees & use a strong wood like Mesquite. Keep the smoke rolling until your meat is done. For med/rare you would be looking at an internal meat temp of about 135 degrees. So if you pull it out of the smoker at 130 & let it rest on the counter for about 10 minutes, it should bring it up to 135.
