New to Smoking (Meat that is)

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by cigarsmoker, Dec 26, 2011.

  1. [​IMG]Hi there, 1st post. My son gave me a Mastercraft gas smoker for Christmas last year.Befor I smoked anything I found this site and soon became intimidated by all the information involved with smoking meat, so I figured I would just jump in and get to it. My first smoke I wanted to do something easy, but what to do, found everyone talk about a "fatty" I thought " what the hell is a fatty". I followed the instructions on this site and the family went nutz for the fattys. Next I tried a Boston Butt, it turned out well but, long story short, It cooked for 16 hrs ( temp too low, no thermometer trusted the Thermometer that is attached to the smoker, WRONG) Next go round, two butts to take to work for a Christmas dinner. Everything went extreemly well, all that partook raved about the pulled pork.[​IMG]


    Sorry for the screwed up pictures, but I'm sure you know the order that they were taken.

    Look forward to smoking with you all.

  10. Are you kidding me!

    I must be in the right place, Woodford Reserve is my fav!!!

  11. Well I surely wouldn't sneeze at a few drams of Woodford Reserve, even if I am partial to Evan Williams single barrel and Bookers.  Welcome to the fray Mike!  Smokin' meat, cigars and fine bourbon....yeah, that's a combination that's pretty hard to beat!
