Who goes over 6 ounces?
« on: June 02, 2015, 04:00:22 PM »
I'm getting myself psyched up for my beef clod smoke in a couple of weeks.  The average weight of the clod is 23 lbs.  I don't know how long it will take but I'm thinking regardless, there is a lot of meat to penetrate.

I'd probably go to 8 oz for a single cut of 23 lbs!  Maybe even more! :o   That's a whole lotta beef to get up to 140, especially if it's fridge-cold to start!

so far, for long smokes, the amnps has worked great for me without overpowering the food with smoke.  I get about 12 hours for my sausage smokes which go one for about 18-20 hours.  it also allows me to have more precise temps and lower heat smokes.  I go 2 hours at 100, 2 hours at 120, 2 hours at 140, then 160 till done.  I have smoke the entire time and I do not think I can do that with the smoke box in the smokin-it and hold those temps.  I would get fire instead of smoke because of the air being drawn out of the box.
the SI#4 should be named "The American" because you can do everything in excess with it.  Just because you can.  'Murica!

Hey Dave,
Have you smoked a clod before, and do they all weigh in that big? The last brisket I bought was $10 a pound and I'm lookin for something a little cheaper to try.
