    slim pickens,
    for ribeyes I would recommend Jack Daniels. If you dont have tha available there is always hickory, which can be used with any meat.

    slim pickens,
    Sweet Potatoes do them at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Oil down the skins with olive oil and put them directly onto the cooking grid. After I finish my chuck roast I will be over.

    Smokin' Todd,
    what other foods could i use the jack with?

  • Smokin' ToddSmokin' Todd Posts: 1,104
    use Jack's mainly with beef. Use fruit woods for pork and poultry.

  • slim pickens,
    Peach or Apricot...
