First smoke was a good one thanks to the information from Jeff and this site. Started with a ribeye roast. Rubbed down with jeff's texas rub and ready for the smoker. Using a pecan and alder blend pellets. In the smoker a little before noon. 5 o'clock it reached 135 deg. IT. Sliced up nice. I was going for a medium doneness but it was probably more medium rare, which was good for me, but my wife likes a little more done. All served up with baked potato and homemade rolls. Everyone was pleased with the results and the new year is off and smoking.
