But I oped it and put it together without the fam knowing...hehe. Plugged it in and it worked. Then I un plugged it and put it back in the box.
I'm also getting a nice digital thermometer, and metal brine injector, cure #1, no cut gloves.
I accidentally threw out the instructions.
Can someone post a link to the instructions?
Do I need to smoke it before first time using?
How do I do that?
What would yall recommend smoking in it first to crisen it? I have a 12lb wild hog leg, some Boston butts, pork ribs, deer meat for jerky, chicken quarters, and deer sausage.
I plan on using dried misquite because I have a lot of it. My chunks are about 4"x4"X1".
Can I just chop them small and use them? How small?
FYI I've never smoked meat before. Ive bbqd meat and grilled so I'm new to this slow cooking.
