So name is Chris im 25 and just stated smoking with an old Brinkman electric smoker my parents had in their garage. I just smoked a pork shoulder with a rub I made and used some chips I had "Jack Daniel's wood chips" The meat fell apart it was awesome, but it tasted kinda funny I think it was from the JD chips. But otherwise it was great. I am gonna use ether hickory or mesquite next time thats what I have. But I hear about brisket from my friends and want to try one of those soon. I am a fan of tri tip but thats just BBQ not smoking.
