Have any leftovers? PM me the address and I will even bring my own "to go dish".

Pretty easy actually. I put 5 tablespoons of oak chips and 2 tablespoons of hickory chips in the bottom part. Salt and pepper the roast very well and put it on the rack. This was a "tall" roast so I had to use heavy-duty foil to cover it instead of the slide-on lid. Then, it smokes on top of the stove for 1 hour. Once the smoking part is complete, I put it in a preheated 275F oven for 4 hours. Remove from oven and let cool a bit, then remove visible fat and bone and shred with a fork. Mix with barbecue sauce of your choice or on a bun with barbecue sauce poured over. We prefer to use the smoked seasoned meat to our own homemade buns and douse with sauce. Also, since the juice/drippings from the meat in the bottom tray has a lot of the salt and pepper and a great deal of smokey flavor, I usually moisten the shredded meat with some of that.

However, you choose to do it, it's fantastic. I've had dyed-in-the-wool barbecue critics completely not believe that the 'cue wasn't done in an outdoor smoker. Hee, hee, hee!!

Man, the house smelled sooooooo good this afternoon. Glenn and I could hardly wait to sample it!!!!

By the way, every time I use that smoker I think of you........one of my very favorite cooking tools.

i'm happy to say that my Navajo tacos turned out pretty darn good. The only thing that makes them "Navajo" is the fry bread, something which I had never made before. Tastes great, and the leftover fry bread can be drizzled with honey for a quick dessert! Delicious!

This was my dinner. Mark's was pictured before. I used some of the rice dish as a filling for a tortilla wrap with lettuce, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses.

Here's the link for the smoker, DL......you'll love it!! I made the mistake of getting the smaller one and exchanged it for the larger......the small was too small.
