    Hey all. New here to this forum and also to smoking. I got a steal on a masterbuilt electric smoker about a month ago and am psyched because I have wanted to try my hand at smoking for a really long time. Situated in PA on the DE border. So far I have done 2 racks of ribs and a Brisket. Both came out really good (Thanks to those on the site for all the advice). I think the Brisket should have cooked longer to get a more tender piece of meat. That is the one thing about smoking which throws my head into a craze. Having only grilled before, the mantra is the longer the meat cooks the tougher, less juicy, and more well-done it gets, which isn't (as far as I can tell) the case for the best meat. I am writing this @ 143 in the morning as I just put in a 10 pound bone in pork shoulder (picnic), Looking forward to how it comes out. Hoping that by 4 tomorrow I have given it enough time to really get tender as we plan on doing pulled pork for dinner and football tomorrow. 

    Any hints for it would be great!

  3. Hope your shoulder turns out good! I do a lot of them, and just find that each one takes its own time. I bring mine to 208 degrees,then rest it for an hour before pulling. Hope this helps.
