Just got my first smoker for my birthday. I'm a food lover in general, when I eat something good I like to go home and recreate it. fell in love with some amazing Pulled pork and ribs and decided about a year ago i wanted to try smoking stuff. Been around reading a little here and there and there is alot of good information. I joined today because i just got my smoker (a masterbuilt vertical lp gas smoker) a few days ago and I'm already pegged to smoke 2 pork butts. 1 for me wifes birthday thats coming up and one for thanksgiving. Looks like I wont get a test run so i have really little margain for error. Any advice at all would be much appreicated. little tricks that arent obvious help, like for example I read that to get the internal temp of a smoker with a wireless probe you should stick it through a potato? No way I ever woulda guessed that. Excited to get started but scared to mess up all at the same time.
