    First i have to give credit where it is due. This was based on a post I read on here by GLGOODWIN ----
    http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...?postid=402126

    Based on his idea I took my old Brinkmann electric gourmet and combined it with the base of my turkey fryer to create a handy and quick propane smoker.

    Now don't get me wrong I LOVE my sNp but I wanted something that I could fire up nice and quick for those short smokes and cold nights and not have to worry so much about tending a fire.

    Took a pork loin that I rubbed down with olive oil and gave a nice coating of my chipotle rub.


    Put in the "new" smoker at 250, had a cast iron skillet in the bottom to throw chunks of birch wood in for the smoke.


    Brought to 150, pulled and rested under a tent of foil for 15 minutes before cutting.




    Not as deep of a smoke ring as compared to charcoal/wood but still there and the flavor was wonderful. Not only the sweetness from the birch but the smoke flavor was very smooth and deep not to mention how incredibly moist it was, I was extremely happy with how the propane worked out.

    Dang FIU, that is a great looking loin. I'm in the process of tweaking a wet rub using chipotles. After seeing your set up, I'm thinking of stealing back my old ECB Gourmet from my daughter. I've got a couple of single burner propane stoves kicking it in the garage that I can use. But then I'll have to explain to Ma Dutch "why I just didn't go ahead and use the propane GOSM".

    To enhance the smoke ring next time, place a couple of pieces of lump charcoal in your chip/chunk pan.[​IMG]

    Thanks all, it really was juicy but that is why I pull them generally at 145-150 and of course adding chipotle doesn't hurt a thing in the flavor department [​IMG]
