Anyone else cook on a smoker? My wife bought me one for my birthday back in November and I have five smokes of chicken, ribs, and a turkey for Thanksgiving. Have a 16 pound brisket on the smoker now and it should be down around 2:00 pm tomorrow!

I've had a few different smokers in my day. Love them. I smoked a turkey for thanksgiving once. Took about 6hrs, but it was the best damn turkey I've ever had. Right now, I have a big green egg. That thing rocks.

Try smoking a meatloaf. Just don't put ketchup on it.

Also, I recommend saving the burnt ends for chili or pizza.

The green egg is the schnizznit. It holds heat like a mother. It will still be 300+ 4hrs after I extinguished the fire.

The Green Egg is way out of my price range as I am a poor state employee. I have a Weber Smokey Mountain (22.5") and it has worked great so far. Started the coals around 9:30 last night; just came back for checking the temperature of the smoker and it is sitting at 230 degrees.

I am trying to keep the temps between 220 and 250 for the brisket smoke... So far so good. I used mesquite wood chunks which I have heard bot good and bad things about; I am hoping the brisket turns out OK! I figure I am probably about half way through the smoke and am looking forward to a few beers, some brisket, and some football later on!
