Smoking Ground Meat

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by smoke break, Sep 13, 2016.

  1. So tonight my daughter gave me the idea to add smoke to our Sloppy Joes, which sounds like a helluva an idea to me!

    Now for the part that stumps me.....

    Do I cook the ground burger first and then throw it on the smoker, or do I smoke the meat first and then cook it?

    What smoker or cooker do you have?

    I can get mine hot enough to smoke/ cook.
     
  3. Oklahoma Joes offset.

    Do you smoke and chop up the meat at the same time? Just wondering if the fat cooking out would take the smoke flavor with it when I drain the meat.

    How hot can you get it?    I would smoke and chop at the same time.  I would think around 275 to 350 would work good.

    I'd make it all the way on the smoker,just stir it up once in awhile when sauced.

    When I do them I just make one big patty & smoke it, then add it to the sloppy joe mix.
