    Wow -  Pretty much all I can say about this forum -  Received a Masterbuilt 30 for Christmas and followed the excellent advice from many of you and here's my first try.  I have to say -  It is FANTASTIC.  Still have a bit of work to do to get the right "crunch", but I'm not complaining (and neither is my family) about the inaugural roast.  

    Day before:  RUB and Mustard 

    Morning of of:  0400, heated smoker, added chips, 225 temp 

    -  Used Half beer/Half water in the water pan, hickory chips added every couple of hours and spritzed with apple cider occasionally (plus, I just had to have an excuse to open up and sniff a bit).  

    Afternoon:  195 degrees off the smoker and wrapped/rested for 30 minutes -  Attached are my results:
