instructions don't give any ideas for cooking, specially vent positions. is there a good recipe book or website that lists recipes for ribs, roasts, fish , wings etc.
You've come to the right place. A lot of knowlegable people here.
I have a Masterbuilt 30" & am loving it. I started with a couple ribs smokes & have also done pork shoulder & baked beans, as well as twice baked potatoes. I've posted threads with pics on all of them. I believe I'll be trying my hand at beef & chicken soon.
Use the search feature here to find recipes for rubs, marinades, sauces etc. There's no shortage of folks who are proud of their work- & more importantly, willing to share. I'm no expert, but I may be of some help, since I'm using the same smoker.
