Howdy Yall! I am a beginning "smoker"!  Made my 1st ever Boston butt over the Memorial Day weekend.  Borrowed a charcoal smoker from our neighbor.  Had some tips and at the end some help from a Whistle Stop BBQ competitor...and he said I did great for the 1st time.  Now I am totally hooked!  I have purchased a Brinkman electric smoker for now.  Know I will move up later to something better!


Cant wait till this weekend to try more things....especially RIBS!

Thank you!  I need to get that smoker put together!  I wanna try something else this weekend.  Any suggestions?

You mentioned ribs, the 3-2-1 method is real easy and produces good results,


Chicken is also a real good meat to get started on because it is cheap and doesn't take that long. It gives you a chance to learn your smoker without worrying about sacrificing dollars on expensive meat. There are tons of good recipes and methods on here for chicken, just use the search bar at the top for whatever you want.
