WFO Question
« on: May 29, 2013, 04:09:22 PM »
Hi,

New member, been browsing for a while as I'm considering a WFO as an alternative to a BGE, for all sorts of outdoor cooking. 

My initial question is has anyone tried smoking/barbecuing in their WFO? 

Thanks in advance for any insights.

Not yet, but it's on my to do list.  I would guess it would be similar, but you have more room for bigger meals.

Depends on your terminology. I cook all kinds of meats in my WFO, but I don't call it smoking or making BBQ. When I cook in the WFO directly over coals, I call it grilling. When it the meat is cooked from the residual heat, I call it roasting. I particularly enjoy grilling steaks and roasting poultry chickens in the WFO.  And baking breads.


Exposing the meat to a steady stream of fresh smoke under very controlled temperatures is what I call smoking or making BBQ. A WFO is not particularly good at that particular task IMO. You can do it, for sure, but depending on the desired results, a dedicated appliance does a much better job for things like ribs, brisket, pork shoulder, etc.
