If you're looking for a quick and inexpensive cut of meat to smoke that has always been a hit for me, try pork steaks. I know that pork steaks are not a common cut of meat everywhere, but are very popular in this area. The steaks are simply Boston butt roasts cut into 1/2" to 3/4" thick steaks. I rub the steaks with a simple brown sugar/kosher salt/black pepper rub and try to let them sit in the frig overnight, but a couple of hours with the rub is adequate. I then put them on the smoker at 250 degrees and pretty much use the 2-2-1 method that you would use for baby back ribs. The one thing I do is during the first stage of cooking I spray the steaks with a 3 parts water to 1 part apple cider vingar solution every 20 minutes or so. I also limit the third stage to 20 - 30 minutes as much longer than that will start to make the meat a little hard.
