Got my new Masterbuilt Electric, looks like an awesome piece of equipment! (But that's a topic for another thread...) Smoked a fattie the night I got it, and the fattie has a strange taste. The wife thinks it tastes like a burnt grease flavor, I agree, but think it's more of a toasted marshmallow taste! I was wondering if it has to do with how fast the wood is burning? With my old gas Brinkmann, we didn't get that strange flavor, just smoke flavor. I would soak my chips (which I didn't do before I made the fattie), and on the Brinkmann I would wrap my chips in foil and put them in the smoker. I could smoke a turkey for 10 hours, and the chips would still have some brown on them, they wouldn't be totally burned through. But with the new Masterbuilt, it takes about an hour and the chips are totally burned black. Am I getting a weird burned flavor because of how fast the chips are burning? Do I need to soak them and use less chips? It seemed like I went through a lot of chips just to do a fattie. I also didn't run the smoker with chips first before I smoked the fattie, but I don't think that's the problem, because I done some cheese the next day and it tasted the same. Anybody have any ideas? This thing is too cool to make everything taste nasty!
