Question about Cookshack SmartSmoker SM350

1 Answer

My cookshack smoker model 350 won't fully cook anything in the right amount of time

The smoker used to cook my ribs perfect and they would come out fall off the bone tender after holding for 15 minutes. Also the brisket and pork loins won't be tender at all after cooking for 12 hrs at 225. The smoker did cook everything wonderfully on the preset settings but since I've started cleaning it ounce a week, it doesn't work the same at all. I do know that both elements are working though. Help!

Make sure the smoker is clean, that would be the obvious cause

How to cook with electric smoker How to cook a brisket? Do you place directly on grate or do you place in a pan


I have found that when using my electric smoker and cooking ribs or brisket I use the gadget that you can purchase that puts your food on end thereby exposing all the meat surface to smoke.The item I use I made myself but similar racks can be puchased. I would not use a pan at any time , if nothing else place directly on a rack.
Happy Smoking !

What temp and how long yo cook a 5 1/2 pound prime rib roast


Cook the roast for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F. Continue to cook the roast until your meat thermometer reads 110 degrees F. Estimate about 15 minutes of cooking time per pound of prime rib.22 Dec 2014

When cooking a pork loin roast in the smoker do you need to marinate it overnight


It is recommended to allow the flavor to soak into the meat for flavor all the way through. I put mine in a plastic container and turn it several time throughout the night before and it turns out juicy and tender.

At what temperature do you cook bone in and boneless prime rib and how long per pound


13 - 15 minutes per pound @ 300 - 325 degrees F, pull when meat is 125 F - 130 F (internal temp.) for rare to medium-rare. Err on the low side. Allow to rest; the meat will continue to cook while resting. For example, if you cook it to be medium-rare (130ish F), then pull it out of the oven, and let it rest, it will end up being medium to medium-well (140 - 145 F) once cut. So be aware.

Bone-in, bone-out it doesn't really matter, because the bone is not in the center of the meat. It's best to let the prime warm at room temp for a period of time, before cooking. An hour or so from the refrigerator (not frozen).

Some people like to place the prime into a hot (425 F) oven or grill/smoker for 10 -15 minutes, then turn down to roasting temp. This is done to sear the outside, which will give it a crispy/seared outside. This doesn't "lock in" flavor, juices or anything else, it is more of a visual and texture thing. If you do this, the cooking time will be reduced, because the oven/grill will have to come down in temp over a period of time while the meat is cooking. I don't recommend doing this with prime rib. It ends up being overcooked and tough, due to the fast then slow roasting of the meat.

What you want to keep in mind is: roast the meat low and slow. Check the internal temp, with a meat thermometer, early to avoid overcooking. Don't forget the internal temp of the meat will rise after taking it out of the oven. Let it rest for 10 - 15 minutes before slicing the meat.

My ribs came out done but not fall off the bone tender. What cAn I do to achieve fall off the bone tender?


For pork ribs, start by cooking them for 2 hours, at 225, internal temp 160 degrees, then remove from the cooker and foil them.

Be sure to put some of your mop juice, or apple juice inside the foil packets to help them steam and get tender.

Smoke them in in the foil for about 1:45 to 2 more hours. Remove the ribs carefully and vent them. They will be fall apart tender now, and fragile. Let them sit.

After about 10 minutes they will have firmed up again enough to move them back onto the grill for glazing. Use some sauce or a finishing rub to taste.

The best way to cook on this grill and how do you use the smoker on the grill. I put some meat on this grill and all my meat burn up. also I will like to know how to use the small smoke box on the side.


Hi dale37...
The small smoke box on the left is used to put your charcoal/wood in, this is where your heat and smoke will come from to cook your meat.
You will adjust your heat going to the large side by adjusting your air vent/s.
It is meant to cook the meat slowly as to make it "fall of the bone" tender.
Great for doing pulled pork also....just takes lots of time because your slow cooking the meat.
Do not use charcoal/wood under the big grill side unless you plan to stay with and turn the meat to keep from burning it.
Please take time to rate me
