Dilemma!!! I'm all out of wood...NOOOOOOOO

Discussion in 'Pork' started by lspilot82, Dec 18, 2011.

  1. Title says it all guys. I thought I had some wood left, in fact I know I had some wood left, but upon looking for it i was unable to find it. Then I remembered that it's in the trunk of my car which is about 3 hours away due to my woman visiting with family. So now I have this rack of BB's all rubbed up, and I have to cook them today. I won't have no time in the next week to get them done. I don't know what to do. I can't get to the store cause we are down to one car. Is there anything else I can use to smoke them? I have some peanut shells, will that work, or anything else that might just be hanging around the house? Maybe I should just throw them in the smoker, no wood and add a little liquid smoke when I wrap them. I hate liquid smoke though. Help me guys.

    What kind of smoker do you have?  If all you need is flavor how about pecan shells,  twigs from the neighbor's fruit trees?

    You can Spray them with Liquid Smoke and Apple Juice/ Coke/Rum/Whatever...They will be ok, I have done this during the Winter when it's too cold to babysit my NB...JJ
     

  5. I have a EECB. I don't have any pecans and I live in a apt complex so no fruit trees around here. Maybe Ill take a walk down the rd and see if i can find some oak twigs somewhere...lol

  8. No charcoal. I have no clue what kind of oak trees are around here. I havent seen any fruit trees around here, but i haven't really looked either. Im gonna head out into the woods and see what I can find.

  10. Uh OH!  Last reply was "Im gonna head out into the woods and see what I can find.".  Should we be concerned?
