Live in Duluth Ga. 61 yr old retired and looking for fun things to do. I just assembled my 40" Masterbuilt electric smoker earlier. Now that I have it in my family room, I am totally baffled!
I plan to pre season it tomorrow, and hope to cook a pork tenderloin, some Italian Sausage on Sunday.
I have NO IDEA what I'm doing and hoping for the best! Any words of wisdom are welcomed. How to cook a few kinds of meats in the same oven at the same time, how long to cook stuff for, how to manage the temps for different types of meats as simple as what should go on what shelf. I know nothing about smoking. I'm scared about the whole idea but will make it through I'm sure as others before me have. lol
Also I read the instructions that said do not cook in enclosed spaces like the garage and don't let it get wet. So can you use your smoker in the garage near the driveway if the garage door is open?
Anyone want to walk me through the first few "smokings? I'd appreciate any advice.
