Mostlywater .. it takes a good bit of time and patience to smoke food ...
but it pays off ..
if you are mostly a hot dog and memorial day type cooker ..
probably not for you ..

I definitely do have the patience but do not have the time for smoking.

You can smoke chicken just fine. If it's individual pieces it shouldn't take that long.

No, but it is different. In the same way roasted chicken is different than fried chicken. Just a matter of preference.

I think smoked anything is very very good. Especially chicken, of which I tend to only eat the "dark" meat otherwise (no, I'm not six, I just never acquired the taste for un-smoked or un-marinated white meat!). I also prefer to eat pork only when smoked.

It occurs to me that while the posts here are very thorough, no one describes the flavor. It is very literally a smoky flavor. Not smoke like chimney smoke but rather that smoke smell that wafts into your windows when the neighbors grill out. Generically speaking, anything in the store labeled as being "hickory" flavored has a smoked flavor. Think of it as giving your meats and vegetables a Bacony flavor. Bacon is usually hickory-wood smoked (I like it apple-wood smoked best). Also, sausages are almost always made with smoked meat. And those hotdogs you like so much are smoked too! So it stands to reason... if you like hot dogs, you'll LOVE smoked meat!

Smoking adds a depth of character that simply can't be beat. I encourage you to try it. Use Kitchenelf's explanation with the foil packet and keep the lid closed!

Happy smoking!

keping the lid closed means we can't cook other food at the same time; other food that's not being smoked ?
