HowToBBQRight Smoker Tour

Malcom Reed’s Smokers

One could say that I have a slight problem when it comes to collecting BBQ Pits, but I really do love them all! Here’s a quick tour of my cooking area at home where we shoot our videos for How to BBQ Right.

It’s not the fanciest outdoor cooking space; but it works pretty well for what I do. It also keeps my pits out of the weather which is crucial in extending the life of any grill or pit. If you don’t have a covered area to protect your smoker from the elements, at least get a tarp or grill cover to shield them. This simple tip will keep you smoking for a long time.

  1. Mr. Reed,
    Thank you very much for all your advise, videos and great recipes. I watch them all the time and use them as well. you have made me the Pitt master of my neighborhood. No comps. for my leave it to the pros like you.

  2. I finally found killer hogs rub, up here in Brandon Manitoba Canada,,, wow it sure tastes good,, cannot wait to try it, love watching ur vids on you tube, very helpfull, I currently run a Rec Tec 680

  3. Mr. Reed, I am a beginner at smoking. I am retired and I want to learn how to smoke meat. I brought a Camp Chef 18 inch smoke vault in June 2018. It seems the best for me at this time. I have been reading and watching videos on BBQ. I have tried many recipes of pros like you. But you are the best in my opinion. You make BBQing, grilling and smoking simple for a beginner like me. Thank you for teaching me the basics. Continue to be the best you can be.

  4. Hi Mr Reed
    Your videos have taught me a lot so thank you!

    I wanted to ask if you leave the fat on the Boston butts or if you trim them off before putting them on the grill. And if you leave it on, do you put the fat side face down or face up on the grill.

    The first time I left the fat on and put it face down and it turned out well. I read that some people trim the fat off so that they can add more spices directly to the meat. I tried that method tonight, but I noticed that It fell apart and that was there was more juice surrounding the butt, with in the foil with this method (both cooked directly on grill at 250 degrees till internal temp of 130 and then foiled til 200 degrees

    Thank you so much!

  5. I just found a couple of your youtube videos and love them! I was wondering if any of your smoker videos could be used with an electric smoker? I have a CharBroil one i would like to try some of your recipes on!

      1. Malcolm – in the last week, I have listened to all of your podcasts and watched multiple videos. I’m sure there are a few of us out here that would appreciate some “electric” guidance. I understand it’s not your first choice, but do you have any suggestions for modifying your recipe instructions to work with this method?

        Regardless, I am a new fan and want to thank you for sharing your passion.

    2. I just received my electric Masterbuilt on 10/16/18 and had the same question. The videos on here are awesome and I am hoping they will work on the electric smoker.

        1. And, feed wood chips every 30 minutes or so. The seasoning / rubs are essential to getting the best flavor from items in the smoker. I have smoked ribs in the Masterbuilt for 4 hours @ 225 then finished them in ‘Texas Crunch’ (i.e., aluminum foil) on the PK or Weber w/ Slow ‘n Sear for another 2 hours at 250F. They are kinda a pain in that the wood chip receptacle is kinda small so you have to stay on top to get the smoke ring you’re wanting.

          I love your videos sir, you’re right up there with Franklin, Soo, and Guga!

  7. Have you ever cooked on a Chargriller akorn? its another ceramic grill for a little over $300, it works awesome. Also i love your videos and they are very informative.

  8. Could you do an explanation on water cookers Vs. Dry cookers ? I am in the process of picking out a smoker and I do t have enough experience using dry smokers.

  10. Enjoy your YouTube videos. I can tell you enjoy taking tough cuts of meat and turning them into delicious bits. Looking at the Myron Mixon H2O 36” smoker and the Old hickory like the one you have Price is real close on both. Did old hickory give that one to you for promotion? Or did you look at all smokers in the $3500.00 range. Why old hickory

  11. Malcolm is the Bob Ross of BBQ!
    Malcolm & Rachelle, you guys do a great job on your videos and podcast.
    Any chance of adding a Tours/Appearances tab to your website? It would great for fans to get to meet you guys.

  12. Howdy Malcolm?!?

    What do you think about the Old Country BBQ Pits, like Aaron Franklin used in his early
    YouTube videos? The Wrangler, and Pecos are the closet to what he was using (they don’t
    make that specific model any more). That’s my next acquisition, when I’ve build a backyard
    area to store my grills/smokers and video setup. I binge on your channel frequently and
    really enjoy your straightforward and clear explanation of your process. I have learned
    A LOT by watching and doing it!

    Thanks!
