Smokin' in Fayetteville, Arkansas

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by satisfied mind, Jan 8, 2007.

  1. I've learned so much from this forum and I just had to join. I jut got a simple Brinkman electric smoker for Christmas and I've been putting it to good use. Any tips for an electric smoker? I've been using wood chips wrapped up in aluminum foil and for the water pan I've been using different fruit juices like apple-cranberry and orange juice.

    Welcome again to the SMF
    Time and experiences are the best teacher..If you are getting a little smoke coming off the smoker the wood chip burn is about right....most folks tend to overload with the chips at first...You might want to try just spraying the meat with the juices you are using and put some warm/hot water in the pan...think you would obtain the same effect you are after with less cost...probably a better transfer of flavor I think

    Good luck! and we all like food porn pictures...

    I used to put fruit juices and what ever marinade I used in the water pan of my ECB. I don't think I ever used water, except a cup or two through smoking to keep the stuff in my water pan from burning.

    I have added an apple sliced in half to my pile of wood chips before. I tell myself I can taste a difference but truth be told I am not sure it really does
