Well my Weber Smoky Mountain smoker is smokin' and there is a 10 pound picnic roast on the rack. It's been on since 5:30AM. I plan to add a couple of racks of ribs at about noon.

I hope this is the start of a beautiful relationship!

I just put on 2 nice thick and juicy steaks on my smoker after marinating them for over 24 hours in my special homemade marinade. Can't wait to enjoy it woo hoo :D

Let me know how your steaks turn out. I think pork is a no brainer in the smoker. Little charcoal, little hickory chunk, = Amazing.

Chicken and Turkey with Mesquite I would imagine great results.

I guess that beef ribs would be similar. But I am interested in what other cuts of beef the Planet has had success smoking and the technique.

Thanks!

Mesquite is a little too powerful for chicken and turkey, I only use it for beef. And steaks arent very good slow smoked, I would just grill them close to the fire with a couple pieces of mesquite or hickory.

I'd heard that about steaks. I'd not heard that about chicken or turkey. I would think just a bit of mesquite would flavor chicken quite nicely. Cheap enough to experiment with I guess.

What types of beef do you smoke?

I use cherry or apple and a little bit of hickory for turkey and chicken. The only beef I smoke is brisket and I tried beef ribs once but I was a bit dissappointed, mainly because they didnt have enough meat on them.

Do you use mops or just leave it alone?

I left the roast and the ribs alone and they were great.

Ribs, pork butt/roast mainly.

Chicken is pretty quick easy and good.

The WSM is amazing. So easy to use, and the thing just cooks well.
