Smoking Rookie!

  1. Hi All!

    My name is Maria and I live in central Pennsylvania, just outside of State College (any Penn State fans out there?).

    I bought my husband a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker for Christmas this past year, and we have loved it so far!  Before we smoke a new cut/recipe, I always check this site for tips, so I figured I might as well join already!

    We are pretty new to this, but so far we have smoked:

        - pork tenderloin (was pretty dry, first smoke)

        - chicken thighs (my favorite), finished on the grill

        - pork shoulder (killer pulled pork)

        - ribs (using 3-2-1 method, awesome)

    Looking forward to learning more about the art of smoking!

    --Maria

  3. Thanks for the tips!! I ended up rubbing it with yellow mustard and a random spice blend, then threw it in along with a bunch of chicken drumsticks and some sweets and white potatoes (head start in the microwave). Everything was done in about 2 hours! DELICIOUS!!!

  10. A few more pics... Got rave reviews from our friends and my husband said he may like the pork more than the shoulder we did last month!
