    Which A-MAZE-N product is right for me?

    Hi all, I'm hoping someone can help point me in the right direction. I have a Smoke Vault 24" in NE Ohio. I have no issue maintaining temps or creating smoke. The issues I have are the need to add more chunks every 30-45 minutes which produces more dirty smoke for 10 minutes until it thins out...

    Timing from butt completion to eating

    Hey ya’ll, Looking for a little expert advice, as I can’t decide which way to go. I’m smoking about 6 lbs or so of pulled pork to eat the first night on vacation Sunday night. Thought is, it’s an easy meal that can reheat slowly in the oven while we’re all unpacking at the house and what not...

    Is It Safe (Would you eat it)?

    Merry Christmas everyone! Just looking for a little advice if anyone is trolling these pages on Christmas. I'm worried that I should just toss my Christmas ham but there are many variables so I want to get some advice. I'm not sure how this went terribly wrong. Had a recipe from a world class...

    How to Get Longest Smoke from Smoke Vault

    Hey all, I'm going on two years with my smoke vault and tips from you all. One thing that still gets me is how to get longer smoke from my smoke vault. I have tried more chunks, covering in foil, moving the chip tray up off the burner a little all to no avail. My default method is 2-3 chunks...

    Pork Butt Failure

    So, at my little girl's request, I smoked a butt on Thursday to make her favorite meal, but it turned out to be a disaster; my first complete failure on the smoker. Not long in to the smoke I noticed black liquid dripping on my deck. I looked under my SmokeVault 24" and saw this was dripping...

    First Time Makin' Bacon

    I'm trying my hand at bacon for the first time, and am just following a recipe to the letter, but there are some things it doesn't mention and I wondered what the experts' takes are. 1) I noticed that there seems to be a membrane on the non-skin side, much like that on ribs. Should I have...

    SmokeVault 24 - Smoking Times

    Does anyone out there with a smoke vault (or any other vertical propane smoker without a separate door for the trays) find that it take a lot longer to smoke that "it should.?"

    Getting through danger zone

    Last butt I smoked barely made it through the danger zone. I'm thinking about doing two or three for my daughter's birthday party but am worried about not making it out in time and wasting 4 hours. For that last butt (6.5 lb) I let it get to room temp for about 30 minutes to an hour (can't...

    Basics on Using Own Wood

    My mom has some apple trees that she has either trimmed or cut down and I'm wanting to put the wood to good use. My question is, what are the basics I need to know about using wood I didn't buy in a store? My understanding is that it should be dry for at least a year. By Dry, I'm assuming that...

    Smoke Vault Manual Say NEVER Smoke Dry - Why?

    My new SmokeVault say in the manual to NEVER leave the water pan empty, and never let it dry out during a smoke. The water pan is new to me (even more so than smoking) and I know some of you still do not use the water pan in your SV. So my question is Why does it say to NEVER leave it empty...

    First Smoke on Smoke Vault 24" Need Some Feedback

    I I just got my SV 24 this week and plopped a 5 lb butt on it yesterday. Previously, I had used my gas grill to smoke a couple and got some pretty good results, the last one the best pulled pork I've ever had (I live in Ohio). As expected, with a new unit the results would be varied until I...
