Hello from South Louisiana

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

My name is Travis, I'm from South Louisiana (Kaplan, La).   New to the art of smoking, just purchased a Masterbuilt Dual Fuel Pro and seasoned it and working with it to get the temp control down to a science.  Here in about a week when I get off I will be attempting to smoke my first pork butt, injected and rubbed down of course.  I've gotten a cast iron skillet for the wood chips/chunks already and plan on using a bigger water tray as I've read people have done to make improvements. Also will be using a Maverick thermometer to get accurate champer temp reading and internal meat temp reading.  Will post my first smoke as soon as it happens!

Looks like you have a plan.


Looking forward to seeing your first smoke!

Welcome to the board! My sister is in Patterson.


You might want to practice with chicken first, keep your mistakes cheap while you learn your rig.

welcome to SMF!

 If you are still having trouble getting the heat regulated you may want to invest in a needle valve regulator for your set up.

 Looks like we are finally getting a few days of winter here in south la.
