I'm new to here and to smoking I do know a little bit about it. We bought a Masterbuilt 40in smoker with the window. For the first time we smoked shrimp, sausage, and a whole chicken. Shrimps where awesome, sausage was good, chicken was good also, I never injected it. Could of been better.
The second time we did chicken and I did the same thing but I injected it with garlic butter 24 hr before and durning smoking awesome. We also did back ribs, wet rub and covered with dry. Maybe should of wet rubbed both sides of the back ribs? Not to sure on that? I guess thats a question there?
I've taken a pork but and cut it in half as I didn't want to smoke for 12 hours so in hopes it would cut the time down a bit. As they say 1 1/2 hours per pound. The but was 8.4 pd and now its two pieces 4.3lb and 3.1lb. I did a wet rub all round then i covered in a dry rub. It's sitting in the fridge for now till tomorrow comes.. Has anyone any thought on cutting a pork but in half??
