The Art of Smoking
The art of smoking meat is a culinary technique that dates back centuries and has evolved into a revered tradition among barbecue enthusiasts worldwide. It involves the slow and controlled cooking of meat over indirect heat generated by smoking wood chips or logs. This process infuses the meat with a distinct smoky flavor while tenderizing and preserving its natural juices.
At Yankee Smokehouse, the key to creating our mouthwatering smoked meals is a balance of heat, smoke, and time. Our pitmasters carefully select the wood—such as hickory, mesquite, or apple—to impart specific flavors and aromas. They skillfully manage the temperature, adjusting vents and airflow to maintain an ideal environment. Patience is a critical ingredient in the art of smoking, as the low and slow cooking method can take several hours or even days, depending on the cut and size of the meat. But the result is worth waiting for—succulent, melt-in-your-mouth meat with a tantalizing aroma that beckons all to indulge in its smoky goodness.
Visit us at the Yankee Smokehouse to enjoy award winning smoked BBQ, pizza, and so much more. Relax in our dining room, in the Pig Pals Pub, or on our large deck, enjoying our location at the foot of Mt. Whittier.
