    My name is Marcus and I,m a league city police officer in Texas. (30mi south of Houston). I'm buying a master built sportsman 40" elite. If read they are not too accurate so I will get a new thermometer Et732?
    Any recommendations on my first smoke? I was thinking brisket but, I'm super green to all of this so any recommendations would be great. Thanks

    Chicken is a great first smoke. It's really hard to screw up and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. An ET732, or an iGrill2 will get you multiple probes so you canointor your pit to and whatever you are cooking. Good luck and post pics of your smoke!

  5. I would suggest something which cooks at a constant and low temperature, such as ribs or pulled pork.  I am unfamiliar with the highest temperature your model of smoker goes to, but, chicken needs fairly high temperatures to crisp the skin and promote a good bite-through.  Rubber-skinned chicken has an objectionable bite-through.

    As for your first smoke I would try ribs using the 3-2-1 method!! If you don't know what that is just search for 3-2-1.
    Good luck on your first smoke whatever it may be!!
