When to chip.

Discussion in 'Pork' started by hookman, Sep 22, 2008.

  1. Should have asked this a long time ago. I find myself changing chips about every hour. When they are all charred and producing little smoke. Does this sound right or should I be letting them turn to ash then change them. I am getting about 45-50 minutes of good heavy smoke. Everything I have made has a great smoky flavor and smell. Propane GOSM.

    when you are less than 30 yrds from the hole. lol sorry, i'm a golfer.

    I do it as little as posible, if it smells smokey then it is smokey, even if you don't see much at all.

    I try to go 1.5 hours or longer, but my smoker is not real efficient.

    You will get more help from others.
    Cheers

    "If you can smell smoke... yer smoking" - Unknown

    The biggest mistake made in smoking meats <on a smoker other than a stickburner> is using too much wood" - Me.
