OK, I have seasoned my Masterbuilt but have never smoked anything. I have the 30" Masterbuilt basic analog model. I want to start with four chicken halves that have been marinated overnight.
What about preheating?
What temperature is best for the smoking process?
How many wood chips in the pan?
Should the chips be soaked or dry?
Should the chip pan be covered with the enclosed lid or left open?
Should the chicken halves be placed directly on the racks or in a tinfoil pan?
Do I use water or apple juice in the pan?
Any information would be appreciated!!
