Topic: Little Water Smokers . . . . From: Debbie,
Subject: Re: Water Smokers
Hi there! I love the taste of quality smoked meat and want to buy a smoker for my husband and I. In your columns I detect a bit of sarcasm in regard for these smaller smokers. Are they worth trying? Will the meat loose taste as a result of using this method? Do you have recipes specifically for them? Please help a novice (but a devout one) out!
I assume that you have read the "Glossary According to Smoky" but still use "smoking" to mean slow cooking. Therefore, I will answer accordingly.
Assumption #2. When you say, "..smaller smokers," I assume that you mean the little "water smokers."
You can, with effort and perserverance, cook meat in a "water smoker" that is tasty and tender. However, for a little more money, you get a lot more space and flexibility in a cooker.
The OK Joe, Char-Broil and New Braunfels at about 3 bills are good buys and will give your chef many years of entertainment and good food.
I'll help any way that I can.
