My first smoking adventure

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by allen9980, Mar 24, 2015.

  1. Hello everyone,

    Well I just finished my first smoking adventure yesterday. My wife surprised me with a new (our first) smoker. It is a Masterbuilt 30" electric...nothing fancy. I really relied on a buddy to get me started cuz I don't know much about this. Anyway I did some country pork ribs both rubbed and unrubbed. Came out OK but still have to figure out when to add chips, how much and what is the best wood to use. I look forward to tapping into all the expertise that is out here.

    What a woman.....nice gift. So, now starts your research using the handy dandy search bar for detailed info on whatever you want to smoke. Many here get great results using an Amazing Smoker tube or pellet smoker that fits very well in the MES providing hours of uninterrupted smoke making your life much easier. As in any hobby/obsession there are gadgets needed. So, enjoy the new toy and get the camera handy to post up some pics here or you'll get replies such as.....


    Have fun....enjoy the smoke......Willie

    Hi and welcome! Lots of people with good information here! As for woods, I'm on a cherry kick right now but used hickory for a long time and have some pecan as well. Really, just stay away from softwoods but here is a link to a list that is helpful to determine what woods will give you the flavor you are looking for.
