My name is tom and I am new to the forum as well as new to smoking. Several coworkers talk about it all the time so I wanted to try it out. I purchased the Masterbuilt 40" Digital Electric smoker and have used it a couple times. Just like most things the more you do it the better it gets.
My wife was very upset at me for purchasing this but I think I have won her over after cooking her favorite (pulled pork) twice. My first run was a Boston butt, 2 pork loins, and some chicken breast. We had relatives over for two days eating what was made. I smoked another Boston butt and some chicken breast this weekend but didn't invite anyone over. The Boston butt came out a lot better than the first run as well as the chicken breast. I gave some to my brother the next day (some pulled pork and chicken breast), he called me later that day to tell me that they heated a couple of the chicken breast and wanted to tell me that was the best he had ever had, that it was very moist. He had not eaten the pulled pork yet so I have not heard about that.
I am looking for every excuse to smoke more and more. I purchased Jeff's book and now subscribed to the newsletter and as you can see the forum. I can't wait to try his rub and sauce. I am hoping to get good enough to start doing some odd catering jobs for pulled pork, etc but not in a big hurry as I want to make sure I have it down to a "T" before starting to do that.
I am looking forward to reading the threads and applying some of the ideal/suggestions that are provided on the forum.
Thanks in advance,
