    What's y'alls favorite wood to smoke with?

    Being from Texas, I feel obligated to say mesquite. But I definitely love oak as of late. It's dense, so more effort in getting logs going, but burns so much longer and the flavor is perfectly subtle, even when you get w heavy smoke going. Sometimes mesquite will get overbearing when it gets too smoky.
    We always use H-E-B oak wood chips. And a pork boston butt.

    I think this is the one I'm going to ask Santa for.

    That's a ing beast of a grill, the last one you'll ever need

    IMO, all the new wave Traeger's and pellet grills, etc.. All that automated crap that turns any average re into a BBQ expert.. A good, heavy gauge, regular old BBQ pit with an offset smoker is where it's at.. These automated grills take all the fun out of setting a goal for a BBQ and serving a damn good selection of meats for game day, or whatever it is you're doing

    yea man I was going back and forth with pellet or stickwood and I don't think I could get the same bark with pellet. It seems easier but I like the art of smoking and maintaining the fire.

    Exactly.. If you wanna combine the best of both worlds get a WI-FI thermometer at most and monitor the temps from anywhere in real time.. Makes smoking briskets so much easier

    No Spurtacular in this thread, so I'm guessing he's vegetarian.

    I saw Andy posted in here and just assumed he was going to say he uses a Foreman tbh. Knowing Andy it would be whatever the Walmart brand foreman is though

    We have one of the Traeger pellet things. I don’t care for it. I personally could happily live without ever eating smoked meat and if I do eat it I’d rather have it at a restaurant and have the work done for me. But thats just me As far as the Traeger itself goes, the smoking part is easy enough, but the plate that slides back to expose the flame for grilling is very small, only big enough for one steak. So grilling more than one steak or 2 burgers at a time takes constant moving of the meat to get an even grill. My personal meat needs were met better when we just did a propane grill and one of those upright electric smokers. So I think the Traeger is a bit overkill for a family that consumes maybe one brisket or pork shoulder, one turkey, 6 racks of ribs and 4 chickens per year from the smoker, but we do have grilled burgers, steak or seafood at least once per week.

    Yea I love meat but I donít have to eat it every day. And I definitely donít need to deal with a brisket for a week or as long as it takes for my family to get tired of it before I throw the whole thing out anyway

    Ha, sounds exactly like something my husband and sons would say—while as we speak there is a gray lump in the back of my fridge Yea they always say crap like “oh man this is great, we got dinner all week” etc. But we all know that after the first day it’s just warmed up meat and gets more easily forgotten with every heating. I always take what I need for beans, chile colorado, green chile stew and flautas/tacos but more than likely some gets tossed when the sandwich appeal is gone.
