Learn what the best meats for smoking are.
So you’ve got a new smoker and want to know which meats are best. I recommend meats that are fattier because they work well with low temps and long cook times. This is because the fat melts as the meat cooks, resulting in the tender melt in your mouth smoked meat that we all strive for.
1. Pork Shoulder and Boston Butt
Pork has solid amount of fat and is a relatively easy meat to smoke (which means mistakes don’t ruin the meal!) The fat content means that pork will self-baste as the fat renders over the c1. ourse of the cook session.
2. Whole Hens
Whole hens are easy to find and make great practice meat for smoking. These birds stay moist and cook pretty quickly due to their relatively small size.
Hint: Be sure to remove the neck and gizzards before cooking!
Ribs are a cheap and relatively easy meat to smoke, especially with the tried and true 3-2-1 method.
Brisket has a thick layer of fat for retaining moisture, self-basting and absorbing a great smoky flavor. Brisket is also an easy cut of meat to find and a solid cook session means you’ll have a grillmaster smoke ring to impress friends & family.
Salmon is a grilling classic and packed with healthy omega-3’s. Smoke your salmon to punch up the flavor and try your hand at a new cut of meat.
