Hey everyone newbie from san diego starting to smoke meat. haha I have always smoked fish with my brother albacore yellow fin and such and now we want to learn how to smoke meats. We have an electric water smoker and I hope this will work well. We are planning to do our first smoke this weekend or friday and we are planning on smoking about 8 lbs of beef ribs and a big ole pork shoulder. I look forward to an advice and look forrward to posting.
