My wife got me a 30" Masterbuilt electric smoker for Christmas! It is the non-digital readout model, I cant thank her enough!!!
I have several questions before I make my first attempt to smoke!
1. I seasoned the unit as suggested per the instructions, and the handful of chips I put in there only lasted about 45 minutes, is that normal? I did soak them (mesquite) for over an hour.
2. My roast, about 5 inches think, 8 inches long and 6 wide, I cut in half length wise and put the pieces in a freezer bag, added the rub and shook the hell out of them to get them nice and coated to sit over night. IS THAT THE OK so far?
3. How long should they take? I was going to smoke them until 160 degrees in a foil pan, adding chips as needed, then put them wrap them in a foil bag with some apple juice until they get to 180 degrees.....GOOD PLAN????
I am really looking forward to this forum and my future smoking adventures!!!
