IM NEW TO SMOKING AND JUST BOUGHT A OFF-SET SMOKER AND WAS WONDERING WHAT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO SMOKE FOR MY FIRST TIME??

post #2 of 8

Hi jbird! Welcome to SMF. I would recommend a pork butt. They are very forgiving and who doesn't like a good pulled pork sandwich! I'm sure some of the other more "seasoned" members will chime in. Just an FYI - typing in all caps is the equivalent of yelling.

pork Butt is a good choice , or some chicken would be good also

main thing no mater what you try is to be patient! keep your temp steady and

sit back and  enjoy! your not grilling so you need to take your time

and use thermometer to tell you when your done

if your looking, your not cooking, keep the lid down

My favored things for hot smoking are are pork butt, pork spareribs, turkey breasts (or whole if you like dark meat), and pork loin.  All of them should be done low and slow, 200F to 250F.

Oh, so much food and such little time!

 

Try a brisket

I think that pork loins are about the easiest things to cook. But I have alos been told they are difficult. My advise....Smoke something that you really enjoy to eat.

pork butt or spare ribs are both good - also will give you a chance to try Jeff's rub, or one or two of your own.  Spares are nice to start with since you don't have to be worried about internal temperature, just use the time and foiling method you will find all over SMF!   Are you familiar with using rubs and brines?  You've come to the right place, and CONGRATS (I shout, Squirrel) on your offset!  let the fun and food begin!!!
