    OK ... after spending some time converting my Master Forge vertical smoker into a Lean and Mean Smoking Machine, I am ready for my first smoke ... or at least I think I am !!!!

    What would be the best dish/recipe to make?  I'm sure I'm not ready for a turkey or brisket yet, so I'm looking for something foolproof.

    Thanks in Advance !!!
  2. Hello and welcome to the fun.  Hopefully a Moderator will move this for you so you'll get more replies.  Many good folk here with a load of experience that they are more than willing to share.  If you have specific questions just start a thread and someone with experience will be along soon to offer advice.  I will assume you have seasoned your smoker and sealed every leak you can.  I always advise the same with this question.  Chicken leg quarters and maybe some burgers with just salt and pepper.  Easy to do and cheap to buy.  I know!  I know!  You have been reading for weeks, now have your smoker, you are ready to get started and this idiot says chicken legs and burgers??  WHAT??  The first few smokes are about learning to control temps in YOUR smoker.  Each one can be different.  If that first smoke burns, the dog gets a good meal.  If it ain’t done, finish it in the oven.  Little money lost and with luck you still get a good meal.  TEMP CONTROL!! IS THE KEY!!  Have fun.  Good luck.  Keep Smokin!
