    Hello all. I've been watching the forum for awhile and finally decided to join. I am  origanally from Montana and currently residing in North Dakota. I've been smoking meat for years and have had several different smokers and have smoked several different kinds of meat. I currently have a Masterbuilt electric and love it. I've had it for about four years. My biggest problem with smoking is consistancy. Tho most of my stuff is good I want to make the step to making it great. I'm looking for help with times, temperatures, rubs, brines, ect. The internet is a great place to gather information but there are so many variations of doing the same thing that i get information overload and start trying to incorporate a little bit of everyones ideas and suggestions and end up with something that's good but not great. Some tried, true and simple methods and recipes would be great! I have a turkey breast that's been brining since yesterday and I'm going to smoke it today but not really sure on my time and temp to get it moist and a good smoke. Thank all! Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks guys. Been looking around and pretty much found the answers to my questions on the turkey breast already. Looking forward to getting started later today. I'll let you know.
     
  5. Sorry for not getting to your question.  I didn't see it in the original text.  I like to cook poultry at 325-350*F.  Turkey breasts don't take long at all -- maybe 3 hours tops.  I look forward to your cook post.
