    I just jumped in and asked how long a tank of propane would last. Either way, I'm a complete novice. Had a little chief electric for about 6-7 years and felt that the element was never hot enough. Had some decent luck with fish fillets, but larger stuff was always finished in the oven.

    After reading several good reviews, I could not resist the Great Outdoors Smokey Mtn from WMT for $99. Clearly this site will be a great resource. I plan on seasoning today.

    What would you veterans recommend for a first smoke?

    Thanks for the assist

    Probably the classics, Ribs. Not hard to do and good no matter what! Oh yeah, Welcome aboard!

    You could also do a couple fatties as your first! They are impposible to screw up!

    Good luck!

    Welcome to SMF !!!
    Fattys and/or a pork butt for pulling would be a great first to try after you have seasoned the smoker, both are very forgiving to make while you will be learning how the new smoker holds temperatures. Remember we like otsee pictures of your smokes.....again welcome !!!

    Welcome. Just did my first a week ago and did a boston but which turned out great. This weekend did chicken thighs and a fatty, both great. Thighs were easy and only took about 2 hours so if your wanting to spend less time..........

    Welcome aboard....you can't go wrong with a fatty or maybe a yard bird. After a smoke or two you'll get the feel of cooking on you GOSM. As far as how long a tank last...I can usually get two all-nighters and maybe a rib cook or two. Get a spare tank cause they always run out when you’re in the middle of a smoke.
