Yeah, if you have a cold-smoking setup.

Smoking is all about insane attention to detail. I'm sure this thread was directed at egghead, but this is what my smoking friends have said consistently. I was looking into this in the past, and I'm really jealous right now.

1. Make sure to get a fatty cut of meat. This will be the most forgiving and maximize flavor.
2. Don't compromise on wood quality. This will influence the flavor greatly.
3. Spend a lot of time making sure you make the rub nice and even across the surface of the meat.
4. Low and slow, as everyone says. It's all about patience at this point. Your first time, check the temperature every five minutes or so. My friends who do it all the time say every 15 minutes while watching football once you get used to it.

Another option, which I have not tried it will eventually, is the use of an automatic temp control system. Basically a fan hooked up to a thermometer and a control board ( and sometimes an android or iPhone) that stokes the coals to keep the temp up and suffocates the coals to keep the heat down. This ensures a constant low and slow temperature.
