Thanks John...It makes sense. I cook 99% of my chicken skinless, just a personal choice, so flabby skin is never an issue. I also understand the Traeger would/should/could be easier to control smoke, giving you a better looking product for presentation.

Keep up the good work!

John,

That is excellent. I cannot wait for warmer weather to smoke a butt. I amy even try having it cut in half. Thanks for the pictures.

Yeah, but brisket and pork come out GREAT in a Traeger, too! How come you don't use it for those cuts? Easier in the electric smoker?

Pork looked great, john!

Hi Lee,

The Traeger does a much better job on ribs and chicken than the Smokin Tex but I prefer the ST for butts and beef. It retains a great deal of humidity, is much easier to use, and can be left unattended for long periods of time.

Man that looks awesome! I have plans this year to re-do the patio and put in an outdoor kitchen, can't wait until I have a smoke up and running!

That Smokin Tex looks like a half-size version of the smoker we have at work. It's called a "Cook Shack", I believe, and has the same coil/smoke generator, same rack system, same mechanism to dog the door shut (but being bigger, has two "dogs"), etc.

That's what it is Allen. Cookshack use to make the ST, they still make some with different names.
