Some good advise. If you are new to smoking I suggest you take it slow. Basic rub, if you want excitement, use the search engine and you'll have several to chose from. If you must here are just some,
My biggest suggestion is if you have not got a remote thermometer, get one. There is lots of kinds, I use an old Maverick. Just so happens one of the site sponsors has them on sale for fathers day. His name is Todd, great salesman!
Second, fine a Guru and try to glean his wisdom. In real life this might involved a dozen donuts, here it usually involved reading then asking questions. Here is a pretty good start toward the reading prerequisite.
If this isn't what you are looking for, maybe another Guru will be more to you liking. Look under the beef section in the forums should be some.
Might I also suggest that you run by the Roll call section and say Hi so you can get the Big boy hello and meet some fine people, they will assist you on your journey thru the site including rules, profiles, equip, etc etc etc..... There are some mighty smart folks here that can help you.
Nice meeting you, hope what I have said helps and please take a min. to check in so you can be welcomed properly.
