HELLO SMOKING WORLD!!! I have been an AVID griller since I was a youngin' and now I am starting to branch out and try to learn the secrets of the southland! Kansas City Style Ribs, St. Louis Style, and the ever illusive PERFECT Pulled pork! With all that being said..... I have NEVER smoked anything a day in my life. I have recently attempted to do so, but all my attempts have failed. I have a four burner gas grill and attempted to smoke a nice cut steak but didnt acheive what I was hoping for, and I attempted to smoke chicken legs today, but my smoke packets in both instances burned up on me, and maybe got a good 5 to 6 mins out of them. What am I doing WRONG??? I want to smoke a Boston Pork Shoulder but I need guidance. I know what I want to acheive but im not sure if I can acheive that iconic smoke ring with burnt up smoke packets! PLEASE HELP ME!!! Any advice on what chips to use for the cut of pork? I have Apple and Cherry. Also, should I use a disposable pan and put soaked chips in that instead of foil packets? I do not have a smoker tin either. Any help would be apperciated!!!
