    I purchased a vertical smoker

    When I owned my home we had a big pit smoker. It was way to big for the 5th wheel and I was starting to miss the taste of good smoke ribs. So I went out and purchased a masterbuilt vertical smoker, the square one.

    Well so far I have smoked some of the best meat I have ever tasted. But the one that really knocked my socks off was smoke steaks.


    I was going to grill them but we forgot to set them out to defrost. My wife asked if I could just put them in the smoker for a hour or so. Well I said it couldnt hurt and fired it up. I put in a chuck of pecan wood and left them there for about an hour then finished them off on the grill. These werent just good, they were the best steaks I have ever tasted.

    So tonight I am going to use hickory on the steak and see how it works out

    One of our favorite things to put in the smoker is........a prime rib! The flavor is the absolute best.

    I was watcing a show on the Food Channel and they were highlighting BBQ. Next time we go through TX, I will be looking for the Salt Lick. I believe it's near Austin. Interesting you mentioned Pecan wood. The Salt Lick uses wet pecan shells to keep the fire from getting too hot. They use a heavy Oak for the fire though. Something else I've heard but haven't tried yet, Deep Fried Steak. I sure miss BBQ places is TX though...

    Pictures please! I tried that and the steak tasted like tender pork/ham. Prime rib came out great!

    I have a couple of smokers and want to find a small one for the 5th wheel. Love that smoke flavor.

    Re: I purchased a vertical smoker

    Bought some steaks at a meat market a while back.
    The guy behind the counter said try grillin 'em while FROZEN!!!
    I thought he had drank too much Quervo until I tried it...It works just FINE!!!
    No more "I forgot to take the steaks out of the freezer" excuse anymore.
    Try it...It works great!!!

    I always take mine out of the freezer and straight to the grill. Works with chicken too. Even sausage.

    Re: I purchased a vertical smoker

    My son turned me on to "smoking" and now that is the camping thing to do when we get together. We just have a plain ole horizontal charcoal smoker. (Read: Inexpensive) However we do use the LUMP charcoal which with a smoker we found is the only way to go and it does last. Our new "only way to go" is using only cherry wood to flavor. Cook it all real slow (180 degrees approx) and mist occasionally with apple juice. (Whatever the meat!!!) The frozen meat is not a problem as you are cooking slow from a low temperature, it just adds a little more time, so more smoke flavor!!!!!

    The taste is nothing less than AMAZING AND MOIST!

    I am a good cook and baker that now has expanded my horizon's: next is the green egg! My son cooks all his meal at home in advance on either the green egg or his home smoker.

    If any fellow "smokers" are passing through north Georgia area stop by Trackrock, I have a lifetime supply of Cherry so I could give some to my fellow Heartlanders if interested. If you like or want hickory I'll give you all I have....
