Discussion in 'Wood Smokers' started by mrmeatcutter, Mar 9, 2011.

  1. I have been into bbq and smoking for many years but after buying my new trailer model smoker find myself in a new world of smoking with wood. Most of my wood experience has been with a very large smoker my company had that we would just load up with meat and wood and smoke litraly 1,000's lbs of meat to server to the public during bbq compititions. We would have it all in foil so the smoke was no real issue

    I know how different woods work best for flavors but my question is can I use regular hard woods like Locus and oak for heat and just add fruit wood for smoke? Also is it best to soak the wood in water before adding to the fire to produce more smoke?

    I will have tons of questions I am sure, the guy I bought the smoker from has been very helpful but I hate to bug him everytime I fire it up.
