I'm aware I haven't been around for a few weeks but I've still been smoking!
At the weekend just gone I smoked a 4lb salmon cut piece of beef over whisky oak. It took about 9 hours. I didnt use any heavy rubs, just salt, vegetable stock powder, onion powder, garlic powder and a little...

I've read some articles about poor smoke rings in the WSM so wanted to share a photo as I was quite proud...
