Brand spankin' new here! Well, not brand new, I lurked for a day or two first and then decided to join.
First name: Joe
I just bought a Masterbuilt Vertical Gas Smoker with Dual Door from Sears and am looking for advice.
Should I season the smoker before first use?
I read somewhere else online that the best first thing to smoke is a pork butt due to its forgiving nature on temperature. Any suggestions on other meats are not needed as I already went out and bought a nice butt. I'm planning on using a mix of apple and hickory chips. Any suggestions for rubs, recipes, etc. or other threads where this may be covered would be appreciated.
If this is too much for this first thread/post please let me know and I will post somewhere more appropriate. I've already seen some great info and can't wait to learn more!
