Hosted a little family BBQ to officially break in the new smoker. Smoked two pork butts and some jalapeño poppers. Spritzed with apple juice every 30 minutes. Turned out incredible! Was never able to get that super dark bark with my pellet smoker.
Doing some beef ribs, chicken thighs and sausages on smoker today. Chicken thighs are my new favorite thing to smoke, super tender and flavorful. If you haven’t smoked chicken thighs, you’re missing out.
Beef ribs @ 275 or so for about 3 hours. Cooked them until they hit 203, then wrapped in pink paper.
Chicken thighs @ 275-300 for around 2 hours or until they hit 165.
