Hello y'all! My name is Todd and I'm from Dallas, TX. I'm very new to smoking meats. In fact, I just got a Masterbuilt Pro, dual fuel, two door, smoker for my 40th birthday. I haven't even preseasoned it yet! m very excited to get busy though. I'm a big fan of just about any smoked meat, especially brisket and pork ribs. However, I'm anxious try anything! I'm hoping to get things started this weekend. Can anyone give me some ideas or tips? What's good to start with? I'd be very interested to hear some rubs as well as woods to use. For instance, soaked or dry chips? Also, when to put them in and when to put meat in would be helpful. Thanks! Todd B.
