    Hello Everyone!

     Jan here.  I am really new at this.  Have never smoked meat in my life.  I am what you would call the brains behind the operation, my husband being the actual cook.  He just doesn't like to read instructions and gives me that job.  We have a new smoker, a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker.  So far we haven't smoked anything, but i have a Boston butt in the frig that has been soaking up flavor for 24 hours now.  We have done the initial curing of the smoker and are ready to go.  I sure hope we don't ruin it as I dearly love pulled pork!  One of my favorite foods, and the reason he got the smoker!  I think he thought it would save money in the long run as buying precooked pulled pork by the pound gets expensive and is a gamble.  Sometimes it is good, sometimes it is tough. I have read lots of instructions, have it figured out that it takes a lot of time to smoke it.  We have what we hope is a good thermometer as well as the build in one on the smoker and I will let you know how it turns out.  I hope it is at least edible for our debut.  I want to thank everyone for all the tips on here that I have read so far.  Wish us luck!  [​IMG]

    Welcome to the board, Jan! You'll like making your own pulled pork, and now you're the ones who'll choose the flavorings and which woods you like.
