does anyone use anything with their wood for extra flavors? I have used Onion, apples and garlic bulbs. These seem to give a nice variation to flavors. I havent noticed any bitterness, and the smoke smell is incredible!

throwing onions in the fire is supposed to help tenderize the meat also. I know of one place that does it, and I have done it a time or two myself.

Rosemary should make a nice addition in flavor.

I don't know if it helps the flavor profile but sprinkling a bit of rub on the wood in the offset sure gets the neighbors attention Laughing Laughing ...

Onion in the fire sounds like a good idea. Something to try next time.

Interesting thread, I have been experimenting with non spice rubs.

I have found that the use of thin set mortar adds a certain firmness in the texture of my pulled pork. Actually, it doesn't pull very well anymore, but my dentist has been fascinated by my efforts.

Adding juniper to hunter's sausages has been practiced in Eastern Europe and Germany for a long time. Crushed juniper berries are usually added to the sausage mix.
Then juniper branches or twigs are added into the fire in the last stages od smoking (15 minutes). It gives sausage a darker color as well. Juniper has this peculiar taste that we all know and like Very Happy - it is added to gin.

See the recipe:

You betcha! I save the trimming from onions, red/green/yellow bell peppers, ginger or anything else that I think might add flavor. Rosemary and Thyme are two of my particular favorites (gonna be doing this very thing in a couple weeks when I smoke a couple turkey breasts).

I usually stick 'em in a cheap-o foil loaf pan, fill it with water and let that smoke/steam drift into the smoking chamber. The difference is very detectable, IMO. . . . It's also a great way to torture your neighbors. . . . Wink Evil or Very Mad

I've thrown some peanut shells in, they have a unique smolder, also coconut shells. It's just a different flavour altogether.
