I am new to the whole smokeing thing I have seen ut done once and decided to get my own smoker and give it a shot. It was not a world class brisket but it was still great. I could live off of a diet consisting of meat only but my wife still wants me to be part rabit. To make her happy I cut up potatoes onions and carrots added butter (I am not scared of fat) salt and pepper wrapped up in foil and smoked for about 2 1/2 hours very simple to make and if your a meat eater like me it goes good with your beef. At the same time I also smoked sweet potatoes for the young one all I did for that was chop up the sweet potatoes add cinnamon sugar and butter. I do not eat sweet potatoes but the smell alone made me try them I think I will eat sweet potatoes from now on.
