Buffalo newbie

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by kenbo21, Aug 16, 2014.

  1. My name is Ken. I live in East Amherst NY. I just today got my 30 gallon pit barrel smoker. I have my fantasy football draft a week from today and want to do pulled pork. I have never smoked meat before and am very excited but kinda nervous. I really don't wanna mess it up and def want to impress my buddies with it. Any advice and help would be great. I did just order a maverick 732 and have a local place called adventures in smoke. The kit came with rubs but I kinda need to know what else it will need. So please feel free any help would be much appreciated

  7. I get all my pork.... Butts, all cuts of ribs and lions from Dash's. I highly recommend their meat and their butchers. Good luck!

    Welcome to our World , Kenbo. Hope you stay with us.

    You'll love the Mini , if you have time , do some Chicken and get to learn your Smoker.

    You'll do pretty good on the Butt , They are hard to mess-up. When the bone slides out , it's done .[​IMG]

    This will take from 1.5 to 2 hrs.per pound of raw meat. You'll need to learn to let her go and do it's thing.


    Have fun and . . .
     
  9. Thanks for the comments guys. I have done chicken and pork shoulder. They both came out great. Now I just got a 8lb pork butt from redlinskis. It's a local butcher and was $2.99lb I thought it was a good price. I have my fantasy football draft this Saturday and want to do pulled pork for everyone. I can't decide to do it Friday night or wake up early Saturday??? I've never ran the pit this long but my maverick 732 just came in and imma use that clearly. So I think imma go ahead and do it Friday night and just put in oven Saturday to warm up??? Good idea? Than I don't have to rush Saturday morning
