    New guy here from Arkansas. My wife and son got me a masterbuilt electric smoker for father's day as I'm a avid hunter and have been wanting one. Looking to learn some recipes and maybe a tutorial on how to use it? Lol! Thanks in advance for your advice!

    Chicken, pork, beef....venison and possibly rabbit?

    I could use a good general intro thread or video?

    Since you are new to this, I would start with Pork and Chicken, they tend to be the most forgiving.  Work your way up as you learn how your unit operates and you feel more comfortable.  Keep in mind that you will have some things turn out not so good.  We all have and we all will have it happen again (if you don't you are not trying)!

    Search this site, there are tons of ideas for you.  If you have questions feel free to ask out here.  

    Good Luck and Smoke ON!
