Welcome to the forum. Before my first smoke I read until my eyes blurred but it paid off. Pick the section for the type of meat you are cooking and start reading. Also look for the great Stickys at the top for primers on smoking.

Welcome to SMF! The first thing ya need to do, before you put any meat in that smoker is do a dry run. It's called seasoning your smoker and it's to burn off anything that may be left over from the manufacturing process. Give the inside a thin coat of cooking oil, then bring it up to 250° or more for an hour. After that add some wood and run it a while longer. That should get rid of any nasty tastes that might end up on your food.
