I wanna learn to smoke!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hello smoker world


I am a total newbie when it comes to smoking and hope to pick a few brains on the forum!

We just bought the master-built 4 tray digital electric smoker, I think my first attempt at smoking will be some pheasants from last weeks opener! Any suggestions on how to prepare these birds? I have been doing some reading on the forum and the term brine keeps coming up what is it's purpose and is it a must for smoking!

My main purpose for the smoker was ribs, but other things I have in mind are jerky and sticks from my wild game!  I have a ton of questions but will ask as I move forward, thanks and hope to be a contributor to the forum!

As for smoking pheasants, there is one sure fire way to make it the very best ever.  Send me two fine roosters, plucked and cleaned, and I will gladly brine, smoke and tell you all about it in a pictured step-by-step toturial for your viewing pleasure.  Should you decide to send more than just a mere two birds, I will do my best to accomodate you the very best I can.
