Hello smokers. My name is Matt and I live in a little beach town in NJ. I got a smoker for Christmas and have been loving it. It is a Masterbuilt Pro - Vertical Propane smoker from Home depot. Very happy with it so far. I did a lot of research before sending my letter to Santa and decided that, for me, a propane smoker was the best choice. I enjoy smoked foods but didn't want to work that hard getting the temperature right and keeping it there. So far I have done a couple of pork tenderloins, about 10 pounds of whiting, a pork roast and a brisket. The brisket was magical and the whiting great. Pork stuff was ...meh... but I'll keep trying. I joined the forum looking for tips and recipes and look forward to getting lots of great smoking info and posting some of my newbie observations about my smoker and recipes.
I use hickory, apple and cherry chips and take hints on which to use form the opinions of others. My go to bottled sauce is Sticky Fingers - Carolina Sweet but I did a home made sauce which was OK.
Today's project will be a small rump roast, slow cooked and mildly hickory smoked. My mouth is watering already. I look forward to great info from this forum and hope to be a contributing member.
