Greetings! Just bought my first smoker, a Masterbuilt electric smoker, model 20070411, 4 racks with window door and meat probe. My wife and I live in upstate NY, (elevation 1,444 feet) and are dedicated carnivores. I've been BBQing for many years, but I am a complete novice when it comes to smoking. I got the bug from my brother who smokes meats and referred me to this forum. I seasoned my smoker today and plan on smoking a whole chicken tomorrow, just to test it out. I will be hosting a family BBQ in 2 weeks and need all the advice I can get. I plan on smoking baby back ribs and a pork shoulder for the BBQ. My family lives 4 hours away and the only way I could lure them up here was with the promise of pulled pork sandwiches. I've been checking-out the different threads on this forum and have already learned a lot. Looking forward to sharing recipes and getting know some of you. Thanks much, E.S.
