New Meat Smoker Here

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by kangsmokesalot, Nov 29, 2011.

  1. Hello SMF. Long time Q addict, first time smoker. My name is Tommy and I will be smoking in Atlanta. Thank you all for the wonderful abundance of great smoking information this forum has already given me.

    After some SMF research and tons of help from my best good smokin buddy, I am getting my first smoker tomorrow. I have decided on the MES 30 and have a Maverick ET-73 in the mail.

    I plan to do a seasoning and temp calibration Thursday night in preparation for a Friday night smoke. For my first smoke I want to do a Boston Butt for some good ole PP. Between now and then I will be trying to find a good beginning rub, so any recs are greatly appreciated. Don't worry, I'll be back with Q-View.

    Thanks Again

    Welcome to SMF, Glad to have ya aboard.

    Congrats on the MES 30. Plenty here that use same smoker.

    I have a MES 40. Smokin' is a breeze.

    Plenty of very good info, and you might wanna try the 5 day e-course. It Helps 

    Also for a good rub you can just type rub recipes in the handy search tool at top of page.

    it will come up with plenty I'm sure.

    Welcome to SMF glad you joined us. Congrats on the new smoker and thermometer. As for a rub I would suggest ordering Jeff's Rub and Sauce recipes they are very good. Here's a link to a Basic Butt Smoke that works very well.

    If you have any questions just ask and someone will be happy to try to help with answers
