I am really fighting some flavor issues with an electric smoker. Not much smoke flavor, maybe even a little off flavor. Almost tastes "oven baked" rather than smoked. The last pork butt I did had no smoke ring, minimal smoke flavor, and a "porky" taste kind of like bacon. Really cannot blame it on the run because that really does not get inside the meat much. On this one, I injected 12 hrs before with apple juice and a few spices. Rub has the typical ingredients. I did not use any mustard this time though since it adheres pretty well. I cannot help but think the electric could be giving me some odd flavors. I know there is no oven that will touch the flavor of an open flame grill so sort of wondering if I have a similar situation? Would be real curious to hear real experiences.
