    Best Smoke Penetration?

    Thanks FBJ. Yea, I think I worded that wrong....I realize that smoke penetration has little to do w/ the smoke ring. I have tasted brisket that is very smokey in flavor w/ no smoke ring and vice versa. I think I will try putting the meat on cold this weekend to get a better ring.

I have heard that putting the meat on cold and smoking at 200*(not 200*-225*) for a while will increase the smoke penetration. Is this true. I know smoke penetration does not directly relate to the size of the smoke...
