    Hello!  Nice to find a bunch of like minded food smoking people.

    I am just getting started on my smoking adventures and in fact my Masterbuilt 30" Electric smoker should arrive tomorrow.  I am pretty excited to get it broken in and cooking.

    Again thanks for the allow me to read and absorb all the information here.

    Welcome 2stoves. 

    Here's an idea;  If the smoker arrives tomorrow call in well Friday,  (I feel too good to come to work),and you've got a three day weekend to get to know it.

    Thanks for the welcome folks.  I been cruising around reading posts and such.  I got my new wireless thermometer today (yes Sunday) and been poking around for recipes for whole chicken.  We are not fond of brining at my house so I am thinking beer can or using the method Jeff suggested in the pie tin.

    I got the smoker seasoned but won't get to use it until Tuesday :(

    Come on Tuesday, huh?

    I used to "beer can" chicken pretty regularly.  I like the results I get from cutting them up and taking them off the grill as they each reach the proper IT better than the beer can method.  Much less mess to clean up, also.

    Post some pic's from your Tuesday smoke.  [​IMG]

    Well my first chicken is done and is currently under foil under dinner time.  Of course, I had to sample it and I am impressed.  I used the pie tin method and the breast came out very moist.  It finished much quicker than I had anticipated by about an hour but the alarm went off and told me to take it out of the smoker!

    Here is the picture of the finished product.
