Just bought my first smoker, a Masterbuilt John McLemore signature. Looking to reading good tips, got directed to this forum via another help site. I've done a pork picnic roast and a Butterball turkey breast so far, and I am VERY happy with the result. The time required to get the meat to 165 was about 9 or 10 hours with the setting at 225. I've read some advice to run it about 240 instead, to make it more like 5 or 6 hours, and I'm going to try that. Very happy with the level of smoke flavor I got, though. I look forward to reading all the expert advice and recipes!!
