Charcoal Smoker Tips from BBQ Boot Camp

Charcoal Smoker Tips from BBQ Boot Camp

We just finished our 7th(?) BBQ Boot Camp and it was not lost on the participants that a Good-One charcoal smoker is masterful instrument, used with ease by those who have the talent to use it. Does it take a long time to develop this talent? No, not really!

Chris Marks from The Good-One company demonstrated just how easy it is to get the smoker set up, get your meat prepped and then “set it and forget it!”  Is this a gross over simplification? No, not at all! Let’s review the steps shall we? They are:

1) Have a good to great(The Good-One) smoker – check

2) Fill the firebox with good to great (TGO, Ozark Oak, Wicke Good or Real Montana) lump charcoal. – check

3) Light the charcoal with something like a charcoal chimney, starter cubes or even a weed burner! (That last part is way too much fun!) – check

4) Let the charcoal get up to temp while you prep the meat. – check

5) Rub your chosen big meat with cheap mustard and apply rubs according to instructions. – check

6) Put your meat on the smoker, close the lid, spin the spinners all the way in and then back out 1 1/2 turns. Set the damper to a 11 o’clock position and wait 5 minutes. – check

7) Bump the damper up or down depending on whether you need more or less heat. Stick temp probe in desire place in meat. – check

8) Confirm temp as desired. All of this should have taken 30 minutes max. – check

9) Go do something else until shortly before expected to be done. Yea, go ahead, you can do this! – check

10) Confirm meat is at the desired temperature, pull this bad boy off of the smoker and enjoy! Simple enough?

Initial review for the Davy Crockett Pellet Grill

Initial review for the Davy Crockett Pellet Grill

Davy Crockett Pellet Grill review from Green Mountain Grills. We recently started carrying the full line of pellet smoker grills from Green Mountain. We are very interested in the how and why of how people get started grilling and smoking. So,  we started by going through the process of taking the the Davy Crockett (sells for $379) through the “burn in” process and then on to the first cook which was something pretty simple, chicken.

We started the “burn in” process and the machine worked well. Because we had to move the unit in the middle of the process we found that it will start over from the beginning if you would happen to lose power during that process. Didn’t seem to matter because nothing unusual happened. After loading the hopper with wood pellets, the unit goes through the three steps of loading the pellets to the burn pot via the auger and igniting the pellets in the burn pot once the pot is filled. It smokes a good bit during the initial ignition but has very little smoke to it once you get close to the 350 degree “burn in” temperature. That all worked flawlessly.

We prepped a nice big, whole chicken by spatchcocking the chicken and flattening it out for uniform cooking. We used a product we sell, called “Sweet Heat” from Custom Smoke when we rubbed the chicken prior to cooking.  Below is a picture of the chicken on the smoker right before we flipped it over and closed the lid.

Initial review for the Davy Crockett Pellet Grill

We decided to cook the chicken at 300 degrees given the fact that we started at 3 p.m. and didn’t want to stay after hours. We used the meat probe provided with the unit and inserted it into the breast and then change the display so that it always showed the meat temp instead of the internal temp of the smoker / grill. We have a number of tools here to validate or cross check a number of parameters so we used an ET-732 remote temp thermometer to validate the thermometer supplied. The ET-732 read about 40 degrees hotter on average during the cooking process.  There is a grease plate that catches all of the drippings and empties them into a little bucket at the right end of the unit. That plate slants up from the right to the left so the heat will rise toward the left side of the unit. Then we repositioned the chicken with the breast toward the left side because the meat was thickest there. We would estimate the thickness there to be 2 3/4″ – 3″ thick

We cooked from 3 p.m. to 5:10 p.m when the breast meat in the chicken reached 165 degrees. The unit was put into “power down” mode at that point with the blower exhausting any unspent fuel to ash and them the unit was unplugged. Everything worked worked as advertised. You can power the unit directly off of your vehicle battery, through the cigarette lighter socket or through a 110 volt circuit in your building. The Davy Crockett is the “Tailgater” version and works very well in that role.

By the way, the chicken was very moist and flavorful throughout with some of our pickiest customers giving a big “thumbs up” to the effort! We also know from some of our larger catering customers that this combination is a big hit with their customers!!

Come by to see our new line-up of pellet grills and smokers. We’ll be happy to answer any questions we can. You’ll be able to maintain the ease of using propane but also move a step up to having real wood flavor!
