First Timer with a New OK Joe

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey all, 


New to smoking, something ive always wanted to try and get into. Purchased a OK Joe Highland model, sealed and seasoned it and will be doing my first cook this weekend. 


Looking for recommendations on a good beginner smoke, i would love to do a brisket however i see posts saying it is difficult. Maybe a few racks of ribs?


Glad to be here. Lots of great info

I always recommend chicken as a perfect meat for a first smoke.


It doesn't take too long to cook, it's easy to cook, & it's cheap.


You can do the whole chicken or just parts.


Here is some good chicken recipes.

Brisket is not an easy first time cook on an offset. To much can go wrong.
Just practice running a clean fire and enjoy your smoke.

Al's idea of chicken is a good suggestion.
Maybe also a nakid fatty. Fatties are always good.

pork butts are pretty forgiving, but take a long time if you're not up for the chicken or fatty
