Smoking Disaster and Smoking Great

Discussion in 'Propane Smokers' started by luv2craftginny, Nov 17, 2013.

  1. Well we cooked our first two things on the smoker, the one being a beef roast, not to good, we left it in way too long, just did not watch it I guess.

    But today we did the best Salmon, recipe out of the book you recommend on this site, it was awesome, I made plenty so we have lots more to eat.

    Congrats on the good outcome [​IMG]   as for the beef roast most of them don't have enough fat content to take to higher temps, Try a sirloin tip roast and smoke it to 135-140 then slice it and you'll have some good eating get a bigger one then you need and take the part you don't eat for dinner and slice it as thin as you can and it will make some great sandwiches later
  4. going to print that out on the roast, thanks.

    Congrats on the salmon.  If you were having to "watch" your beef roast, then I'd strongly suggest a good remote Thermometer such as a Maverick ET-732 or something similar.   It's one of the best investments you can make with regards to smoking.
  6. yup got it like in one day from Amazon.   I think in that cookbook I bought, it has a chicken on top of a beer can, will try that soon.

    Ginny.........I think you have been bitten........by the smoke bug. Just wait until the sausage bug gets you......

  8. I bought the cookbook they recommended on this site, have the smoker, the digital thermometer everyone recommended, so I am off and running.
