    We have many years experience with indrect grilling with the Weber Kettle, but now want to step up our game.  We recently purchased a Yoder Pellet Smoker, and have had great success with baby back ribs.  However brisket and chicken not so much.  We are looking forward gaining knowledge and experience in the art of Smoking…..

    Welcome to the forum.  This place has been so helpful for me.  I'm opposite of you with my smoking success.  Have not gotten my ribs down quite yet but getting close.  If you have any questions feel free to ask and you'll get plenty of help.  The search bar is great for finding older threads too.

    Hello there I'm hoping you can help me. This is the first time I've used the internet so I hope I'm doing right. Just brought the same type of smoker in your picture there and I am going to use it for the first time at the weekend. I just want to know how much wood I use to smoke. If you can help me i would be very grateful

    With the chicken, I attempted a beer can type method, on a pan that I purchased through Weber a few years back.  I set the Yoder at 250, and  had my temp probe in the thickest part of the breast.  Despite all of this, the thighs were still under cooked, when the breasts were done.  I feel that next time, I will split the whole chicken in half, brine,  cook flat, and at a higher temp.  350 degrees??

    The brisket moist and tender, I was just not happy with the flavor of the meat.  Could be the rub, or the injection recipe.  Both times we used hickory pellets. 

    Thanks for the input
