Hey everybody. My name is Jay. I live in Arkansas and just bought my first smoker. It's a masterbuilt 7-1. I've been grilling and cowboy cooking on open fires for years. Just never had a smoker. Right now at this very moment Ive got the first fire lit to season it. I bought a Boston Butt that I'm going to cook tomorrow. We'll see how it goes.

Well I've already learned why manufacturers say to season a smoker. It's so you can learn how the smoker cooks! Need a different wood tray. This one has slots in it and I'm thinking its letting to much flame on the wood. Can't keep the wood from catching fire.

That's why chicken is good for learning your smoker, your mistakes are less expensive.

Wrap the wood in aluminum foil and poke some holes in it. That will allow it to smoke slowly without flaring up.
