I just received a smoker from a friend who could not take it when he moved.  Lucky me.  It is a side smoke which is what I wanted and can't wait for the weekend to give it try.  I happened onto this site looking recipes so again lucky me.  Just so everyone does not think I am always lucky I did  drop and break my phone.


If anyone has any good recipes for a beginner let me know.  two days till my first try.

I'm a newbie on here, too. Just got a side smoker about 2 weeks ago. First recipe I tried was bacon-wrapped chicken breasts. Will paste link below. It was simple, straight to the point, & turned out delicious!

I started my smoking life with an offset, and a pork butt.. The best advise I can give you is .. Let the smoker stabilize before putting on the meat.
Most new owners are so excided about the cook
Just light the fuel and toss on the food , before the
Pit reaches its running speed.. Light it up close the door and wait like an hour till you get the temp into
Your target zone (225-250) . Add small chunks of woods. Wait till the white smoke is gone. Then you are good to add your food.. Low and slow. And Dont open the doors to see how it's doing( if you are're not cookin..)
That's why I started with a butt.. Big piece of meat and very forgiving..
Oh yea... Welcome all our new members
