    Retired and know nothing about Smoking except that I like it.

    Cooked up a pork roast (jerky) the first Time I used it, I thought it was good. The wife had a different thought on it.

    I signed up for the 5 day Smoking Basics, will see if that helps.

    I have a Electric SS Smoker Masterbuilt, got it on sale from Sam's for $200.00. Looking forward to cooking something except Jerky..[​IMG]

    Hey Jimbo,

    Welcome to the SMF! The 5 day course will do you loads of good. Also, as you look through the forums, there are things called "Sticky's" at the top of each forum. These are deemed fool-proof ways to smoke certain meats. Be sure you read through the sticky's for anything that you want to try. I do not have an electric smoker, but I have read lots of post by people that do and they seem to love them. Good luck and dont be afraid to ask Any questions.

    Welcome Jimbo.
  10. Lots of good information here. You'll be smokin' like a pro in no time. Well, there is a learning curve as someone mentioned, but you can bend the curve a bit by first smoking forgiving or easy meats. Boston Butt is a forgiving piece of meat, smoking chicken thighs is an easy project for a newbie, drunk chicken isn't too difficult.
