What is a BBQ smoker.  

The BBQ smoker is about cooking. Cooking over wood brings out the real BBQ flavor. Gas, electric and charcoal grills provide only heat, NOT flavor. The natural flavor of barbecue comes from cooking with real wood smoke from fruit woods like Apple, Alder, Cherry, Hickory, Maple, Mesquite, Oak, Black Walnut, Pecan. These are the traditional smoking woods that give that great BBQ flavor when grilling food! The real flavor comes from the smoke of these woods as it penetrates the food. For real slow cook BBQ, cooking temperature should be between 175 and 225 and don't exceed 250 degrees. Cook for several hours and use a meat thermometer to find when the meat is done. Keep your BBQ food moist. Baste food often or place a can of water in your BBQ grill or a pot of water in your smoker to keep your meat and fish from drying out. For additional flavor use a BBQ rub of spices and rub spices on meat with your hands before cooking. Let meat stand for about 1/2 hour before cooking. Don’t use too much salt in your rub because salt may dry out your food while cooking. I you like barbecue sauce you should baste the BBQ sauce on regularly so the real wood smoke adds flavor to the sauce as well as the meat you are smoking. The barbecue sauce won’t burn or blacken if your temperature is low.
