    Hi new to this site  but must say looks great. I just got into cooking with a smoker .. have cooked for years and Im not bad, but cooking in a smoker is all new to me.. So hope I can get some tips, just got a new Brinkmen upright smoker 19 3/4 .

    I did some mods and thay seem to be great get good heat and smoke. I would like to know if I can cook a Beef loin in this I have grilled them in the past ,but would love to do one in my new smoker. If someone knows a great way to cook one would be great.

    Welcome johnny 66.

     IMHO a beef loin will benifit much more from a hot quick fire than from a low and slow smoke.

    The tougher , fattier cuts of beef work better on a  low an slow smoke ,where the lean cuts can dry out on you pdq.

     Once you get this smoking thing down a bit  ( learn the 40°-140° rule)  you may try taking a cold tenderloin and slicing it in medallions and hit it w/ cold smoke for a few hours and then straight to a hot skillet  for a quick sear to a nice med rare.

    serve w/  a  peppercorn sauce over some garlic mashed potatoes.

     But i dont know nothing about cooking so that's just my humble opinion.  LOL

    Welcome to the SMF....you'll learn a lot here, I know I have. Used to use a ECB with decent results....just watch how hot it runs on you till you tame it. Now, I know smoking tenderloins runs contrary to most of the conventional wisdom but it can be done with good results. I've recently done one and it was delish....here's the link to the post.

    First off welcome Johnny to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are alot of really good folks that would just love to help you with anything to do with smoking. Now we like having new folks here to give a new prospective on some of the ways we do things around here. Now if you are really new then I would suggest that you sign up fir the 5-day E-course it free and it will give you the basics on smoking and a few recipes too. Here's a link to it:


    then you will have a method to your newly found madness and believe me it will be a madness. Then when you start smoking things you will have to learn how to post the pictures / Qview 

    here. So here's a link to a tutorial on how to post your Qview so we can see what your doing.


    Now the next thing you have to do is run out and get something to smoke. Then just smoke it and if you have any questions just post  them here and we will answer all your questions that you might have. Oh yea there's no stupid questions we were all there in the beginning and we just really like to help others enjoy the fabulous smoked foods that we do. So again
