Hello to everyone, name is Chris. Lover of all types of food here and I've always wanted to get into smoking. I received a masterbuilt dual fuel pro smoker this past Christmas. I've been researching on times/brines/rub/etc and everything points me to this site. So, after about a month of lurking, here I am I had my first test run a few weeks ago with chicken. Didn't turn out that bad. Brined it overnight and smoked it for ~4hrs w/ hickory chunks. I ran into the typical problems with this smoker that I've seen mentioned on the site. It was also 35 degrees out, 30 mph winds and raining...oh well. My next plan is to go the cast iron skillet route and possibly move the water tray. Just wanted to say hi to all. Can't wait to hear from you and share in the fun! Trying round 2 this weekend with a pork butt!
