1. What is a good base and rub
2. What is a good adjustment time / temp for the 25* temp tomorrow
3. Would hickory be a good starter wood
Thanks for the input guys!
Welcome to the group! There is lots of info available here on the Masterbuilt smokers and rubs. Use the search bar at the top of the page and search for your smoker. You can do the same for rub recipes. I've used "Jeff's Rub" exclusively since trying it. The link to purchase the recipe is at the bottom of the page and the money supports this forum. Happy smoking.
P.S. Hickory is my go to wood for everything!

Hickory is a fine smoke for pork. Hickory/apple is my favorite pork smoke BTW. Just my point of view, but if its your first smoke, I would go a little light handed with it though because it's a hard smoke. Too much hickory smoke can get overwhelmning in the begining. I know, loads of folks say smoke it and smoke it and smoke it... But start light and you can add more the next time. You can always increase it next time, but you can't take away if you over smoke.
Just be careful with it.
This is a great site for info, just hit the search engine located above and you can even look for specifics, its alot smarter than I am.
Look around and remember not everything you read will be applicable to your specific smoker so when you read remember to take the info for what its worth.
Good luck and have fun......
Looking forward to seeing pictures of your achievements, we all like vicariously thru your smokes also. hehehe.
Good morning and welcome to the forum, from a cold and windy day here in East Texas, and the best site on the web. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about everything.
