I live in Australia where smoked BBQ isn't really common. I asked the butcher what he'd recommend for smoking and he suggested a blade steak (I believe it was). It weighs about 1.5kg / 3.3 pounds.
I'd like to smoke it tomorrow at my parents. My brother has a cheap smoker, http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/products/master-forge-charcoal-smoker, that he bought from a hardware store. There are also hickory wood chips.
I've only smoked once before (some lamb shoulder, I think it was) and, given that I'm quite new to this, feel a bit overwhelmed from the info online.
How would you recommend that I proceed? Do I marinate the meat overnight? Use a dry rub? Should sauce and baste as I go? Do I need to create a foil tent? How long can I expect it to take? What temperature am I looking at?
Any advice will be appreciated. :)
