You're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of taste. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of seasoning and flavor. That's the signpost up ahead - your next stop, the BBQ Zone!
Did you know that you can add another dimension of flavor to your cook?
When we inject and season, we layer rubs to create different dimensions of flavor, but there is another dimension few venture into. That is the dimension is the drum smoker.
When we cook directly above the coals, the fat from what we are cooking drips down onto the coals and burns off. The resulting smoke adds a unique layer of flavor that can only be captured in a drum smoker.
Next time you are in the market for another smoker, or you want to try and build one try a drum smoker. When used correctly they can produce an excellent product.
I put together this quick video describing the benefits of the drum smoker and things I like to do to generate even more flavor.
