First-time smoker

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone.


I'm a newbie when it comes to smoking. The funny thing is...I just briefly mentioned to my wife about 4 months ago that I would like to start smoking meat. To my surprise, my wife and kids got me an early Father's Day gift yesterday. They bought me a Master Built 40 electric smoker from Sam's Club.  It hasn't even come out of the box yet.  First of this a good smoker?


I'm not even sure where to start so here are some questions from some of you smoker veterans...


What type of chips should I use?  Dry chips or wet chips?

What is a good meat to start with?  I don't want to go out and buy an expensive piece of meat right away and ruin it. 


Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!

Welcome to the board! Many people here use that smoker, use the Search to look it up and find advice. For a first meat, I'd suggest chicken pieces so you can get the hang of your smoker before taking on big or expensive cuts.
