    Forgot to ask, what are you using for wood smoke???[p]It's been awhile since I've done one but will this weekend for a nighbor. Thinking of pecan and cherry or hickory and cherry.[p]Thanks,

  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    My wood of choice is pretty much always apple...If I'm doin some beef I might reach for some Jack Daniels chips or even some mesquite...but prety much everything else gets apple wood..[p]Wess

  • WessB,[p]
    Want some????[p]Mike

  • wrobswrobs Posts: 109
    Where do you get your apple wood? All I can find locally is chips and would prefer chunks.
    I want to get some apple and cherry cuz I have yet to cook anything using either one and would like to try it on ribs and such. When it comes to steaks and tri tips, I really like red oak.

  • Squeeze,[p]Not familiar with the "tumble" reference. Help Please. Wess the butts look great.

  • FidelFidel Posts: 10,172
    WessB,[p]Nice![p]Just how deep is that drip pan? I would expect just a tad bit of drippage.
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    E bay..but check the shipping..the last batch I bought has been the best so far..all heart wood an no bark.[p]Wess

  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    This is the pan I use for a drip pan...It fits the XL perfectly with the setup I'm using...[p]Wess

    Richard Fl,
    Wess and I both have a product called the Culinary Prep. It is a great vaccuum tumbler which has two different size drums with the capacity to do 20lbs of meat at a time. It also uses a process which by using their product eliminates bacteria from meat and vegitables. Great product that has produced some outstanding results for me. Send me an email if you want more info.[p]-Kevin

    I got some nice chunks of apple wood from Steve Smith off frontage rd.
