Perhaps you have a party, and there is no adequate time to cook meat for the attendants. In that case, do not choose the smoking method. You can roast meat on the grill rather than smoke it fast and risk people’s health. When smoking fatty meat, you might have to wait two hours.
But when cooking tough cuts of meat, you might leave them overnight. Do not add more heat to rush your smoker, or else you will serve overcooked and inedible meat.
If you rush your cooking, do not blame it on your best instant read meat thermometer. Instead, teach yourself to wait until the correct time for cooking meat ends.
