    Once I drunkedly did water instead of milk. It accomplished what it needed to, but wasn't nearly as satisfying.

    He smokes whole chickens...those make GREAT chicken salad, chicken tacos or quesadillas...and it is super-cheap. The chicken tacos, we make with black beans, fresh sweet corn, the chicken, a little taco seasoning/salsa/guac, and jack cheese.

    Also, that smoker makes "no fail" ribs. Rub with a good seasoning mix, put them on for 5 hours at 250 (sauce and wrap about 3 hours through if you want).

    A pork shoulder takes longer (about 7-8 hours, IIRC). He uses that for sandwiches (topped with slaw of course); and a great rice and salsa verde concoction.

    Just something to think about since you are home during the day. You can fill up the smoker and have enough meat for many lunches and meals.
    I do have a Masterbuilt electric smoker. In fact I'm using it this weekend in a little competition on Saturday at church. You're right about smoking the whole chicken. I made the best chicken salad from the leftovers. Amazing. I may even do that for the competition. The issue with this is that my wife isn't that keen on smoked foods. Really sucks because I love to experiment with it.

    Regarding the pellet comments. I bought those pellets from Fareway this last time to experiment. Is there a probblem with using those pellets in an electric smoker? I've done a couple things with them and haven't noticed an issue.

    Do your pellets look like this?:



    I ask because I've never seen them at Fareway, might have to check. As to whether it'd be a problem, I'm not an expert on electric smokers, never had one (went from charcoal to propane to pellets), but as I understand them, there's 2 types: The one that has the pan over the heating element that you just put chips or whatever in, I think you might be okay. The ones like the bradley smoker that use the pucks...you might have issues with, I'm not sure how the smoke generator works in those. I think masterbuilt are the first type.....but again, I'm not an expert on electrics.

    Ribs using either a KC-style BBQ sauce or a Memphis-style dry rub (both of which I found recipes for on the internet), with garlic mashed potatoes and sweet corn. Mmmmmmm. Y'all can suck it; my Fourth of July is ******* awesome.

    What is it with you hawkeyes and telling people to suck it? A bit homoerotic, I'd say....
