A smoker is a great way to have amazing BBQ right at home. This Marinade for Smoking Meat is easy and leave whatever meat you are smoking so tasty!
A few years ago I got my husband a smoker for Christmas. It ended up being a great purchase because we use it a lot! Weekends are spent slowly smoking pork or beef for a great dinner and then we have plenty of leftovers to get us through the rest of the weekend.
This marinade is one that I’ve been using since we got the smoker. A great marinade is a key to tender meat, so don’t miss this step.
How to make the BEST Marinade for Smoking Meat:
To a pan add the Coca-Cola, spices, apple cider vinegar then the molasses.
Over medium-high heat cook for 5 minutes, stirring as it cooks.
Turn off the heat and add the ice. Let the marinade cool.
In a dish add the meat then pour the marinade over it.
Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 12 hours, flipping the meat about halfway through.
Smoke meat as you like.
What ways are best to smoke meats?
- Low and slow – My husband made this pork roast below by just letting it go low and slow over 9 hours. It fell apart and had some amazing burnt ends on it.
- Texas Crutch – This involves smoking the meat for a time then wrapping it with foil. Check out this great article about it here.
