Hello folks, I am newbie and I have a MES and lurked on the site to get an idea of a decent starting place. Wife wanted a chicken so guess where I started... Pork Butt of course. Yeah I am lying. I made a whole chicken. Used the mayo and rub recipe and i found here and it turned out pretty good for my first smoke. Needed a bit more smoke in my opinion but the wife liked it. I also threw on some small red potatoes and they smoked up great. Here is a pic of the first cooked bird.
