The Best Cuts of Meat for Smoking

When it comes to the best cuts of meat for smoking, some overarching rules apply. First, you want to choose fatty, dense cuts of meat. Second, you want to ensure you have mastery over your outdoor cooking grill. Finally, you want to ensure that you have the best wood pellets or chips available to really instill a rich, deep flavour. These three rules will ensure you always have something delicious to eat at the end of a long, hearty smoke session. 

So, what meats meet the first requirement? Below, we take you through our three favourite cuts and give you a bit of guidance on how to make each of them reach their fullest potential. Let’s get started.

Three Meats to Enjoy in Your Outdoor Cooking Grill

Pork Shoulder

Pork shoulder is a dense and massive cut of meat. It is the perfect addition to any outdoor cooking grill because of its high-fat content and juicy, tender finish. For best results, be sure to choose complementary sides that cut through the heaviness of the meat, like pickled onions or beets and fresh corn on the cob.

Beef Brisket

Many consider beef brisket the premier smoker meat, and for good reason. The depth of flavour and the tenderness you can create with this cut are unrivalled, among other cuts. The only way to improve on this classic of smoker culture is to choose the finest cuts available. Select for deep and extensive marbling for a truly out-of-this-world experience.

Pork & Beef Ribs

Much like corn on the cob, ribs really deliver that tactile feel that improves nearly every culinary experience. Well-cooked ribs should slide right off the bone, leaving only delicious and succulent meat. Of course, we all know that removing the membrane from the ribs before cooking will help ensure a more delicious and even smoke. But, consider mixing your wood chips together for a truly transcendent experience.
