Need tips on smoking with gas

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just bought a masterbuilt vertical gas smoker and I have never used it. Plan on smoking a 12 Boston butt this weekend. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I have read about not using the stock wood pan to use a skillet or aluminum foil so I figured I would put my wood in the stock tray and wrap it with foil to prevent flair ups.

Jason, morning and welcome to the forum.....    If you have time, read some of the advice in the link below about needle valves and what they do to enhance your smokers performance.....   It's worth the read and the advice has helped many members control their smokers to a workable temp without using a water pan....     Just click on the link for the information......       Dave

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

 

We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

 

If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

 

If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
