newbie - checkin' in

I just got my smoker. Tried out a few things - fattys, chicken, ABT's,

A guy can't live on that alone, so I'm looking for help at every turn.

I can't wait to dig in and learn.

Welcome to the best smokin' site on the net! Don't be afraid to ask what you don't know and share what you do... we're a friendly bunch here!

So, you want to try something different... try a meatloaf, or smoke a pork shoulder or a Boston butt for pulled pork. All are very forgiving and will produce a "Wow" factor among your family and friends.

Have fun!

I bought a Masterbuilt Electric smoker. I've got a remote thermometer, couple of bags of woods, working on favorite rub (gotta keep away from garlic though).

Got the smoker and found this forum on recommendation from a friend - KWesmoker here.

Looking to do a pork loin next.

Thanks for the greetings.

Welcome to SMF keys! Glad ya found us. Try smoking mixed veggies during your next smoke. Just a suggenstion:

zuccinni, yellow squash, onion, and bell pepper mixed with garlic, s & p, and EVOO. spread out on foil and go for it, turning every so often.

Good luck on the future smokes.
