Smoking with Beer

Discussion in 'Blowing Smoke Around the Smoker.' started by Chief Alien, Nov 30, 2018.

  1. I am curious to hear any experiences and tips for adding beer flavors to smoking meats.
    I have read about soaking wood chips (but fear it would dilute the wood flavor?) and putting beer in the pan (makes more sense but would I do a 100% beer or a beer/water mix?).
    I also have been thinking a beer soak of the meat might be worth trying. I want to be able to taste the beer in the flavor but not have it overwhelm or be too beer forward.

    I plan on trying them all but would love any advice anyone has.

    Thank you.

    Soaking wood chips is not a good idea regardless with what. Marinade with beer, maybe?
