On behalf of Expert Village I’m Terry and
today I’m going to give you tips on smoking a beef brisket. As I showed you before I have
used a electric smoker, a vertical smoker. There is also a horizontal smoker where there
is a fire box on the end. The fire box is on the end and the smoker lays up here. When
you build your fire the fire does not reach the meat but the smoke flows up and through
the area where the meat is at. It goes through the meat and then out the smoke stack which
is usually on the other end. Then you are purely smoking the meat. The smoke is preserving
the meat. The heat is helping cooking it but the smoke is the one that is preserving it.
That is the best way to go, varies a electric cooker. You don’t get the full charcoal flavor
out of a electric cooker but a like I said if you live in town and you got close by neighbors
and you have limited resources then the electric one is the way to go. The electric, if you
get the upright where it is electric and you can place a water bowl in there the water
bowl helps steam up the meat. So it will retain the moisture throughout the cook out. If you
don’t use the water bowl well then your meat tends to be a little drier.
