New Hobby.

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by boarider, Jun 17, 2013.

  1. New guy here never smoked anything,lol.

    Just ordered a masterbuilt 30" electric smoker to start with (looked like a good starter), should be here in a couple days.

     I've learned that forums are a great place to learn form real people and not just someone trying to sell you something, so here I am.

    I live in South Louisiana below I-10 so good food is nothing new, but this should help me put a twist on it.

    Looking forward to learning from you guys.

    By the way, is there a must dish to start with that is simple? Need to show my wife this new hobby is a good one.

  4. I had signed up for the 5 day course befoe joining the forum.

    Smoker should be here today, just waiting on the brown truck.
    Picked up a Boston butt and some sausage yesterday, now to see what I can put on them. Time to start reading.

    Thanks for the welcomes.

    I always think of pulled pork as the best entry level bbq item. Almost impossible to ruin a pork butt.
    Rub that bad boy down with yellow mustard and sprinkle on the rub you like. Let it set for a bit and then pop it in the smoker around 250 until you hit IT of around 205 for pulled....maybe 190 if you want to slice it. Look up a recipe for a finishing sauce to mix into the pulled pork and your guests will bow down to you as a pit master.

    :welcome1: , by the way and good luck. Post some pictures! :sausage:
     
  6. Thanks hambone, that is what I'm here for, looking for any ideas.
    Not much of a mustard fan but I have 4 daughters and I'm willing to try anything once.

    Still waiting on ups, then I guess ill do the seasoning process and figure the wood flavoring (soaking chips?).
