Well, sorry about your bad luck.  Amazon will take care of the shipping problem with little or no fuss.  In the mean time welcome to the forum.  The search bar at the top of the page can be your best friend.  Have a question/problem just search it.  Feel free to post and questions you have and someone will come along and help you out.  You will get some conflicting answers but do not worry there is more than one way to make great Q.

Welcome to the board! Oh well, at least you can study up in advance and gather some tips and warnings. No guarded secrets here, everyone shares what they've learned.

 

If you're completely new to smoking, you might want to do some practice runs with the oven. just to get a feel for how something like a butt or rack of ribs cooks over a given time/temp combination. Then you can shoot for that with the smoker.

looks like tuesday jan 6 so the meat had to go in the frezzer dont have time to play with it till the weekend,but i did need to ask does anyone spray the meat during smoking? like with a spray bottle with apple juice or similar? and i got a nice 7 lb pork butt and a rak of ribs can i start the butt first smoke the 3hr time  and then re start the smoke for the ribs the i figured needed to be added half way through the butt time.

I'm a stick burner and I do spritz using apple juice or a 50/50 mix of apple juice and apple cider vinegar
