Love smoking all kinds of meat.......

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by animal54, Mar 23, 2013.

  1. My name is Kevin. I live in central Nebraska and truly enjoy smoking meats. I have done butts, shoulders, ribs, briskets, chicken, turkeys....ect.

    Right now I have a Masterbuilt electric but am looking real hard at a Smoke Hollow propane. I like the looks of it but some what concerned about using propane. When I do pork buts....it generally takes me 14 to 16 hours at 220 degrees. Briskets are about the same time but 230 degrees. I have had great sucess but wany more smoke with less attention to adding chips. Do you think this is the way to go.

    Thanks to everyone!!!!

    I have a propane smoker and butts used to take a long time for me too so I kicked up the temp to about 280* and have almost cut the time in half and they come out just as good if not better. Here is some testimonials to the hot and fast method:

    If you want more smoke without having to tend to the chip pan you should look into A-Maze-N Products smoke generators, The AMNPS and MES is a match made in heaven and the AMNTS is working very well in propane smokers:

    Even with propane and the stock chip pan you will still be tending to the wood quite a bit, The AMNPS can give about 10 hours of smoke on one load and the AMNTS about 5 hours.

  9. [​IMG]Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything  ........

     

    Most of the BBQ places around here cook too many briskets for the day. They wrap them in foil, hold them in the refrigerator until needed. warm them back up (in the Foil) then bring them out and slice then.
