An electric smoker cooking times chart is a very useful tool in identifying the amount of time needed to cook a certain dish but that is not the whole story yet, because temperature should be considered as well. It is a common belief that cooking your meat is all about the amount of time whereas less consideration has been given to the right temperature. It is no wonder why you can get an undercooked meat even though you cooked the meat in the correct pound per time basis. Below are some lists of the meat you can cook according to the amount of time and correct settings of the temperature.
An electric smoker cooking times chart including the temperature may include cooking beef roasts, beef brisket, lamb roasts, venison, and large cuts. These are all weighing about 3 up to 9 lbs which can be cooked within 25 up to 30 minutes. The temperature can be set starting from lower 140 degree Celsius up to 170 degree Celsius. The weight of the meat should be directly proportional to the temperature of the electric smoker but it should only be within the suggested temperature range given.
Pork and beef ribs can be cooked within 45 minutes or 60 minutes with temperature of 170 degree Celsius while if you want the meat to be fully grilled then you can wait until the meat begins to separate from the bones. For sausage links when fully grilled can be cooked for as long as 3 to 4 hours with the same temperature. Cooked ham regardless of its weight can be cooked within 3 to 4 hours with temperature of 130 degree Celsius while if the ham is fresh, then the cooking can last for 7 to 8 hours for ham that weighs around 10 lbs or from 10 to 12 hours for 15 to 18 pounds of ham.
The electric smoker cooking times chart and temperature also include chicken meat. This meat can be cooked within 4 to 5 hours with a temperature of 180 degree Celsius. You can also try removing the chicken leg; if it’s quite loose, then the chicken is already cook. For bigger chicken which weighs about 5 lbs, it can be cooked for 6 to 7 hours with the same temperature. If you wish to cook turkey which does not have extra stuff inside and weighs about 8 up to 18 lbs, it can be cooked for about 4 to 6 hours with the same temperature of the chicken.
The electric smoker cooking times chart and temperature stays the same for duck which can be cooked for 5 to 6 hours while the goose can only be cooked within 30 to 45 minutes. Fish on the other hand can be cooked differently. Whole fish and fillet can be fully grilled but n order to check if it is already cooked you need to flake it with a fork. You can set your desired temperature but just remember that the slower it is, the better the flavor.
