smoking in milwaukee

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by bigpete04, Aug 25, 2013.

  1. Greetings Folks,

    My name is Peter - I am from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

    I am a longtime grilling enthusiast and have dabbled with smoking in the past.  I bought an ECB a few years ago so I could start smoking Pastrami and brisket - but the unit was so frustrating to use that while I enjoyed the results, I didn't really enjoy the process.

    I decided to simplify things and ordered a 24inch Smoke Vault which should be arriving on Monday.  I am very excited.  Off of work on Wednesday - I will assemble and season the grill on Wednesday morning.

    As I only will have a few hours in the afternoon to mess with the smoker - I was thinking of doing duck breasts (maybe curing first pastrami style?) as my first experiment on the smoke vault - as those should only take a few hours

    In addition to the briskets (bbq and pastrami), beef ribs, duck, chicken, turkey etc that I plan to smoke, I am also very hopeful that the Smoke Vault will be able to maintain a low enough tempoerature that I will be able to do beef jerky also.

    Wish my luck!

    Peter, I am sure you will be able to do whatever strikes your fancy. That is one of the best things about this forum. I just started smoking a year ago and whenever I want to try something I just do a search and there are many posts by great members who have done it in the past. Also, there are great posts from members with ideas I had never heard of before. Recently, Bearcarver posted a great recipe for double smoked ham that was so incredible I had to try it. It was wonderful.

    This forum is a wealth of good ideas, friendly members and lots of help.

    Welcome to SMF.
