    Hi, my name's Daniel from Montreal, Canada. I've been grilling meat my whole life but just decided to buy my first smoker (partially because of a trip to Memphis which blew my tastebuds away). Before i go big with a WSM i decided to go cheap so i can experiment. I now own a Master Chef Vertical Charcoal Smoker which isn't the most popular model (not sure if they even sell it anywhere in the US) but has gotten good reviews.

    Unfortunately I've got a limited timeframe to smoke since I live in an apartment so i obviously can't use it there. I keep it up at my cottage which unfortunately isn't winterized so i've only got about may-september each year to smoke until i buy a house...downside of trying to smoke meat in a seriously cold country.

    I've posted my first few questions in the below thread and if anyone has any suggestions i'd love to hear them

    looking forward to talk to you guys

  2.  Welcome to the forum, Dan. I hope you find some answers that help. If the tenderness was your only complaint, you should try the 2-2-1 method (2 hours on the rack, 2 hours in foil with some braising liquid, then one hour back on the rack). See how you like that and adjust from there.

     I would use wood chunks and I don't soak. Where you place the wood can change the burn rate.
