  1. Hey Everyone,

    My name is John and i'm new to the forum and to smoking. I just got a Master Forge Electric Smoker as a gift. I've been grilling for years but never smoked anything before. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from everyone and getting the most out of my new unit. Any good ideas for a first timer? I've got my sights on doing a Boston butt as my first time project, but would like to venture out into other meats. Any thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated, especially on my particular smoker and the best way to use wood chips with it. I really love wood flavor and want to incorporate it as much as possible. 

    Good to be here and i'm looking forward to hearing from you all!

    First off welcome to SMF there John. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.

    Welcome To Your New Addiction
  4. I love the stuff and would definitely like to find a good recipe to use. Growing up here in NC i've been around it all my life and can't get enough of it. I must say though, as much as I love Lexington, i'm more of a pulled pork kind of guy. I grew up pulling it right off the pig on the grill. Hard to beat it!
