Recently I started reading that soaking wood chips is nothing but a waste of time and fuel as the wood doesn't absorb much water and the water itself needs to evaporate before combustion can happen. Soaking them just delays the smoke. So over the last couple months I've been skipping the soak and I gotta say, I wish I had figured this out much earlier. I'm getting a ton more smoke, getting it much earlier, and by just monitoring the heat I'm actually getting less flare-ups because I don't have to crank up my burners to get the smoke started.

    Anybody else's thoughts?

    Don't Soak Your Wood. This Myth Is Busted.
    I never soak anymore....I soaked and used a smoke box and realized by soaking it simply took far longer to get them soaking than when not soaking. At root, to get smoke the wood must first heat...and by soaking you are merely prolonging the time it takes to get the wood going.

    you're right, I was a bit off. take it to 110-120, then sear both sides over high heat to almost crusty black, taking the tri tip to around 130.

    I got one of those huge syringes and injected a chicken with butter and spices and it is amazing. Every bite has flavor!

    I made spareribs for the first time. Went with memphis dust for the rub and apple wood chunks for the smoke. Tried the 3-2-1 method and ended up closer to 4-1.5-10min.



    Ended up with quite the bounty after i trimmed the ribs.

    Am I doing something wrong? Another Tri-Tip tonight. 230 in the smoker...was done in 1hr 10min. Seems to fast to me. Didn't even have enough time to get a good smoke.

    Did the simple ribs, 4 hr smoke, 45 min in the foil.
    Daughter said it was way better than restaurant ribs!
    Glad I bought the traeger, so easy to use.

    Have not tried a tri tip yet. I usually smoke a bit lower than that, around 180-190. just my 2 cents. again have not tried it yet.
