Hello and Welcome to our addiction. Many good folk here with a load of experience that they are more than willing to share. If you have specific questions just start a thread and someone with experience will be along soon to offer advice. All info you can provide us with such as smoker type, location and so on will help us answer any questions you may have, and pictures help a bunch. Spend some time doing some research on the forums, tons of advice and recipes already available there. Check out Jeff’s 5 day smoking E-Course ( link below ) that will help you get started. We look forward to your contributions. Have fun. Good luck. Keep Smokin!
forgot to say after looking through the forums. I would spend some time going through them or searching out Pulled Pork or brisket and you should find some really good tips. I find by reading the posts of what other folks have done right, gives me ideas for the next time. I have cooked a couple of BB this summer that have come out to perfection and I followed recipes and steps I learned here. SMF is a great place!
Hey Josh, hello and welcome from East Texas. Look through the forums and post lots of information on brisket, pork butt and just about anything else you can smoke. If you don't see or can't find answers just post your questions and someone will be glad to help.
Welcome to the group. Things will get better if you had good cooks with some meats you can get the others. Sounds weird but it doesn't hurt to write things down you did so you can repeat them or not repeat them if didn't work out the way you wanted. Good luck with it and keep smoking.
