Orion Cooker Smoker

by Mike Eitelgeorge
(Riverside, Ca)

Orion Cooker-Smokers use briquettes around the outside to heat the inside. The drip pan sits inside with a ring of "chips" around the inside next to the outside and smoulders from the briquettes directly outside.

My daughter gave me one for Christmas and I have only used it 2 times. The drip pan adds steam & flavoring (if juice is used) so the cooker parts cooks like a convection oven. This allows for a 3 lb tri tip to cook in about 1-1/2 hours and a 20 lb turkey in about 2 3/4 hours.

The meat turns out so juicy & tender that you would have thought a pro cooked it.

For ribs, tri tips, etc I finish them off on the barbecue grill, for about 10 minutes, just to give it the outside texture that you get with the grill.
