Seasoned and ready to rock

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by schlockstar, Jun 15, 2008.

  1. Hello,

    First off, awesome forum - I've learned tons of great info just in the past 48 hours.

    Signing on from Portland, Oregon. For Father's Day/birthday I got a MasterBuilt [best wife ever!], seasoned it and am now ready to start doing some smoking.

    Thinking of starting with a chicken - any tips on the best way? Does the beer can apparatus thing work well?

    And rub versus a marinade?

    Thanks...back to lurking and reading....

    welcome ss

    make sure you sign up for Jeff's FREE 5-day ecourse.........lots of tips and tricks, about what you just asked........

    beer can shoved up the butt of a chicken, is a nice way to start............but for a easy, all most fool proof piece of meat to try, is a boston butt..........you just about CAN"T mess that up, if you can control your temps.

    once again, welcome

    Welcome to the SMF, and congrats on the new smoker too! The bear can chick thing works very well, and it's so easy. Do a little reading on the subject, and you're set to smoke.

    Welcome and good luck with the Masterbuilt. I love mine.
     
  11. First smoke yesterday went great. Beer-canned a chicken for almost four hours @ about 260 degrees. Went a bit crazy with the chips - next time much less. There's so much more to learn but the amazing tasting chicken really gave me some confidence to go full on!

    I'm hooked.
