Definition of Smoking?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by smoking in ft. collins, Jan 23, 2007.

  1. OK, so what is considered smoking???

    I know if I smoke a brisket for hours, it is considered smoking.

    So If I offset cook a steak with lots of wood chips for say 1/2 hour, is that smoking or just BBQing with flair!?!?

    Just curious!

    yo fort collins,
    im glad to meet you !

    i m h o
    bar be que is cooked low and slow
    so you can bar be que in a crock pot--

    give me a minute -while i brace for the onslaught ,for that statement..

    smoking is adding hard wood smoke to the cooking process...

    ---you cant do that in a crockpot--only liquid smoke...

    there is 2 ways of smoking--
    1 is cold smoking---thats 90 to 110 f..

    then theres SMOKE COOKING or called hot smoking..

    q is considered between 185 and 225 f degrees

    smoke cooking can be that.. also it can be on offset from meat cooking..

    cooking steak your way is smoke cooking...

    hot smoking takes hours--
    smoke grilling takes minutes

    every one will not share my opinions...
