I live in Western Maine just outside of Fryeburg. I've been wanting to try smoking for several years now. I looked and looked and looked and finally decided to just pull the trigger. Friday I ordered my Masterbuiilt 20070910 30" Digital Electric Smokehouse from Amazon. Monday morning when I got home from work it was laying under my steps in the pouring rain. Tuesday night I seasoned it and today, I smoked two racks of pork ribs and a whole chicken cut in half.
I'm in love. Is this the best smoker out there? I don't know. Nor do I care. Worst case scenario is that I had some wicked good tasting ribs for dinner. I used a simple rub recipe that I found online and sauced and wrapped one of the racks while leaving the other dry. Holy smokes. I'm impressed for my first time out. I can't wait to take some of my ribs to work tomorrow and share with some of my friends.
Always welcome to new ideas. New recipes. New techniques.
I used pecan wood for this batch but have some apple and cherry that I want to try as well. There's something about fruit woods that I find appealing.
If you have any good suggestions or just want to swap howdies, hit me up.
