New to the forum, but not to smoking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello all, my name is John and I've just gotten back into smoking after several years downtime.  Previously, I had a Brinkmann barrel type charcoal smoker (mostly whole salmon and chickens/turkeys), then a New Braunfels Hondo that turned out many, many briskets, butts, racks of ribs, chickens, turkeys, and rib roasts, mostly with pecan wood.  The time it took to manage just got to be too much and it went unused.  I just picked up a 40" Masterbuilt electric 20100311 and already smoked a couple of 11+ pound butts.  Yum!  A Masterbuilt cold smoke generator will be here on Tuesday, and my laziness will be complete! :biggrin:

Glad to be here!  Here's one of the first butts from the new smoker:




1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup paprika
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder


6 hours in hickory smoke at 225, finished (wrapped) in the oven at 250 to a final internal temp of 198.

Bone pulled perfectly clean, and dang was it good!
