Found this on YouTube and found it interesting.....especially in regards to their smoking schedule.

What do you all think?

Seems simple enough but an awfully fast, high temp smoke. Seems like fat out would be a likely occurrence?

At 20% fat content and going to 200° could easily fat out a bologna roll. I've done it. I never exceed 180° ever in my smokehouse unless I am using whole meats and then I do not need too. Low and slow is best, IMO.

Mine takes time to heat up but I would stay at 165° on that smoker and stay until the IT hits 145 and holds for 15 minutes and call it quits.

Agreed. I usually stay around 25% to 30% fat content and step up to 170° on the smoker.

I just wasn't sure how these guys were pulling off these temps. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
