1st time poster and noob smoker.
I live in Az and got my 1st smoker ( a masterbuilt) for X-Mas
have had a blast so far (some success and some failures) but I never say die.
I see so many posts/receipts/guides and never know which ones to believe. found this forum and figured I'd see what others like me have to say
best so far was the pictured pork butt I did for 15 hours with applewood chips and a kicked up brine. the bone fell out as soon as I touched it. worst was 1st attempt at ribs, to much rub and not enough soak on the chips.
I hope to gain some insight and maybe pass on some wisdom (way down the road)
