    Switched from a masterbuilt electric to a pit boss pro series 4 v2 vertical pellet smoker and can’t get more than a slight hint of smoke flavor on the outside of meat (no smoke flavor inside) Even after using a smoke tube. My electric always gave me lots of smoke flavor (could smell it...

    Hey guys, Lamb shanks - one of the most underestimated cuts, and absolutely undeservedly. I love those braised or, in this case, smoked pretty much the same way they smoke turkey legs. So here we go! So simple, so delicious - few lamb shanks, rubbed with olive oil and sprinkled with Kajun...

    Which smoker is better for my needs?

    I'm looking at both an electric smoker (MES 440 OR MES 140) and a pellet smoker (Traeger 575 Pro). I love to cook and to BBQ but am new to smoking. The appeal of electric to me was that it seemed very easy to control heat and to use (I intended to use the A-maze-n smoker tube). My concern about...
