    My son just bought me a subscription for my birthday. I bought a Bradley smoker a year ago and just love using it. I've used it about 2 dozen times and have had huge success with briskets, pulled pork and ribs. Can't wait to learn more from other members.

        Hello Jerry and welcome. I've had my Bradley for 5 years and have used it extensively. It's a great device.

                  Thanks all, for the welcome wishes.

                  Do any of you have any suggestions or experience smoking a venison hind quarter? What smoker temp and meat temp? What kind of wood for smoke? Should I use any rub or sauce? Any suggestions would be appreciated - if it's a good one.

                    I've never done version in my cookers but one of our moderators, Huskee , has some advice from another thread.

                    "I can say this, treat venison like beef, not pork. So, a good wood for beef IMO is oak, pecan, or apple. Smoke it indirectly, but keep the smoke subtle, beef & venison do better (IMO) with subtle smoke, as opposed to pork which can take all you can throw at it since it's inherently more neutral flavored. If you want a medium rare & juicy venison quarter, shoot for an IT of 135. If you want pulled venison, pulled pork style, take it slowly up to 203ish and then hold wrapped in foil for an hour or two, then shred it."

                    Husky knows his stuff and I would take this advice to the bank.
                    I hope this at least gives you a starting point or an idea of what to do. Welcome to the Pit and thanks for the support!!!

                      Thanks for diggin that one up, Spinaker!

                      JerryP, I recommend Meathead's Big Bad Beef Rub. It's peppery, so go lightly if you're not a huge pepper spice fan. Dry brine it first for a couple hrs at least, overnight might be better if it's a thick roast, since this rub intentionally doesn't contain salt. Then as your smoker is heating up you could put a light layer of oil of the meat, or spray it with Pam (that's what I do), then add the BBBR.

                        With BBBR I've found it's best to go with a coarse grind and NOT use the pre ground pepper they sell at the store.. That way it doesn't end up too peppery.

                        It's much the same principle as table salt versus kosher salt. 1 tsp of kosher salt is equivalent to 1/2 tsp of table salt.

                        Yes, good point Pit Boss. I use coarse grind pepper (or restaurant grind it is sometimes called in big jugs) in all my rubs when I make them including BBBR. I only use powdered pepper in my Shawsh recipe.

                        I use a grinder and set it to to big grounds.
