Do you have probes to measure internal temp of meat? If not that is something to invest in!
- pork tenderloins are affordable and are an easy start for a shorter smoke time.
- bone in pork butt for a longer smoke, probably 18 hour commitment, to make delicious pulled pork!
- beef tenderloin is a good red meat to try for shorter smoke.
- whole chicken/beer can chicken!
Good luck, let us know if you have any questions, make sure to provide some details/pics too!
