Great job, nice lookin' meal, my dog is the same, in fact the other day I was moving some stuff around in the garage, and she was outside with me, and I had to move the smoker, as soon as I grabbed the smoker she went nuts, waggin' her tongue hanging out, she was upset when she realized that I wasn't actually going to be bbqing, and was merely moving the smoker out of the way.

how was the smoke ring with an electric smoker
This was my 4th smoke ... 1) ribs, 2) brisket, 3) Turkey and 4) this rib/chicken combo.  I got a great smoke ring on the Turkey, but compared to what I have seen on the Q-view in this forum my smoke ring on the other items were "not much".  I chalk it up to a learning thing and not a gas smoker thing.  I am still messing with wood chips versus chunks, putting the chips in foil, soaking the wood, etc. ... trying to get the best combination.  What I tried this last time that seemed to work okay (although not a great smoke ring) was to soak the wood chips and put them in a foil packet punched with a bunch of holes and putting it in the fire box.  I then put a couple of wood chunks on the top of the fire box.  I seemed to get alot of smoke from the chips and a small, steady smoke from the chunks.

So, having said all that ... I am open to any and all suggestions on how to optimize the smoke and get a good smoke ring.

I would just suggest finding a retailer that fills propane tanks.  Blue Rhino is way expensive where I am (Kentucky).  Luckily we have a Pilot and another place around here that fill up tanks for about $10.

Boy does that look good.  I have never tried the bacon wrap before, but will next time I do chicken. 

Great job.
