Old School Smoke with QVIEW - My 1st

Discussion in 'Pork' started by smoke 2 geaux, Mar 24, 2010.

  1. Back in the days before I had a smoker, or really knew anything about smoking, I used to smoke meat by lighting a fire on one side of my pit and putting the meat on the other side. Even though this runs much hotter than a true smoker, I didn't have sense enough to know it, and turned out some pretty good grub. Last Saturday I was feeling a little nostalgic, so I thought I would do a little smoke "old school" style. I had a small piece of shoulder (about 5 lbs) and a chunk of pork loin. I rubbed them down while the natural wood Royal Oak was heating up. Here they are all rubbed down and ready for a smoke nap.

    Here's what it looked like after a couple of hours. The poke test confirmed that the loin was ready to come off, which was a handy thing because it was getting to be lunch time.

    Heck thats the way I started out smoking too. I just didn't know it and didn't use any wood either. Heck your old scholl way of smoking sure looks like so good eats now. But now I know alot more and really like the real smoking that is done around this place. So keep on smokin.

    I have done this hundred of times and it always was a lot of work but a lot of fun too.
  7. I knew I smelled someone smokin' some meat when I got home from work today. Looks great!!
  8. Hey Smoke,I cooked this way for many many years and never had a complaint about how the food tasted the "Old School Way" ...Like you I have to revert back to a simple smoke now and then.
