New From H Town

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello all.  Just getting in to smoking.  

 

Purchased a Masterbuilt 40' electro smoker from Academy Sports & Outdoors...Amazon price $349.00...Academy price $199.  Smoking good deal!

 

Just finished a 5 lb bone in pork butt at 225 for 10 hours and found it to be tough and not 'falling off the bone'.  A bit disappointing but could have been my fault and not that of the smoker.

 

Dabbled in sweet BBQ sauce, east Carolina vinegar-based sauce and west Carolina mustard-based sauce and all tasted great!

 

Look forward to being a part of the group.

Hi Tom

Welcome!  You've got a great unit!  You'll really enjoy cooking on it.  Be sure to join the Masterbuilt group.  There you will find lots of hits, tips and mods for your unit!

Welcome to the board! I was telling Linda about the Carolina sauces, you never see those in Ohio.

Welcome! One point to keep in mind is always go by internal temp of the meat , not time . I smoke pork butt to an IT of 205 F, then I loosely tent with foil and let it rest for an hour before pulling.

Good luck!
