When in your opinions is it best to throw brisket, butt or any big chunk of meat into a smoker for ultimate smoky taste?

I've heard that meat will no longer absorb the smoky taste once it hits 130'F.

If so, would it not be better to put the chunk of meat in the smoker directly from the fridge? Room temp is let's say 70 which gives you 60' worth of heat and flavor absorption. From the fridge the meat is 38' which will give you 92' of absorption. A lot more flavor...

Any thoughts?

Ozz,

Meat will continue to absorb smoke as long as you give it smoke. Thus oversmoked meat. What will happen is that the formation of the smokering will stop around 140.


FYI
I put my big meats in and let them come up to temp with the cooker.

I take them out of the fridge/cooler, rub them down, and toss on the cooker. Never found an advantage to letting the rub sit overnight, or letting it come up to room temp.

My meats are only out of the fridge long enough for me to rub them down and let the smoker warm up to temp,maybe an hour tops ....then its right into the cooker,all my meat gets plenty of smoke.

I start the fire and while it is coming up to temp I rub down the meat and let the temp come up to about 275 this takes around 45 min to 1 hour depending on the outside temp.

I put the meat on with the door open and me fooling around getting it placed on the grates this also lets the temps come down and then I am off and running.
