I ordered this one at Home Depot, which is due to arrive tomorrow the 9th

https://www.homedepot.com/p/LANDMANN-Vinson-VS32-3215GS/306247726

 

1st test will be a 2 hour run with fish, to check temperature calibration and general use... next will be a 9 pound pork shoulder (to make pulled pork) which will take 10 hours

 

Has anyone else used a propane smoker... of any brand?

-any favorite recipes?

Recipe for pork says 1 to 1.25 hours per pound @225 so I was planning on 10 hours for 9 pounds

 

Wife said she was ready after 9 hours, so I brought it inside on a cookie pan... the thinner part on the right (about 3 inches cut off the end) was done... the rest had to go back in for another 2 hours

 

The next time I do pork I will get a boneless roast and cut it in half to cook the 2 pieces quicker

My second use of the smoker was going to be beef brisket... except the 'supply channel' has been disrupted by the virus, so I had to use chuck roast instead... since it does not have a layer of fat to melt down and keep the top moist I put strips of thick sliced bacon on the top... the one on the right is darker because it was marinated in apple cider vinegar (a test for my wife and a recipe she found)

 

Result after 3 hours at 225 degrees F - the marinated piece was more tender, as well as having a 'slightly' vinegar taste... enough to be noticed (wife really likes the taste) not so much as to be offensive... so all future beef will be marinated to help with tenderizing
