I am new to smoking I have only smoked a few times and I was wondering if I could smoke a chicken and some beef at the same time. I have a master built electric smoker what temperature should I go with and what kind of wood? Thank you!

Hello and welcome to you.

I do know that, yes, it can be done.

Keep the chicken either beside or below the beef.

I would cook at about 230*.

Trouble is that makes for rubber chicken skin.

So to fix that, you get the chicken to a few degrees below fully cooked.

Then you put it on a very hot grill or in a very hot oven until you get the

skin right and the internal temperature that you want.

It's not a difficult thing to do, so give it a go.

Have fun with it all.

Welcome aboard!

I would use cherry or apple, mesquite is too strong for beef.
