my smoke n grill gets pulled out to water smoke whole birds over mesquite. I have found water smoking ribs didn't come out so well. I have not used it without water. I have many other smokers for that so I keep my two gourmet smokers waiting for whole birds. I just stored my 2 electric gourmets in the basement. they work well on good weather days above 60F but I missed the charcoal flavor. I havent plugged them in in years and needed the room. for the same reason, I threw away my gasser :)
I just found an American dude over here who's just started selling proper American BBQ. I've tried his ribs, chicken legs, beef short ribs and brisket - everything was amazing - http://www.88kbbq.com/en/
. The best thing is that he told me he'll shortly be selling hickory and mesquite wood chips! I'm really hoping to smoke some ribs and pork shoulder, so I hope it'll work! Are you saying I shouldn't use the water pan when I do this?
