What works for one, doesn't work for another.

What one likes, another hates.

To any noobies, don't sweat the small stuff. Smoker temp, and meat temp are about the only things I can think of that REALLY matter. Smoker temp is very vague, not 100* and not 400*. Salt & pepper are all you need for spices.

Hey "pros", help me out or tell me I'm wrong.

My point is basic(like me), smoke it and like it..........low and slow.........and don't sweat the small stuff. It's not hard, takes time, and is reallllllllllly good when you fine tune it.

Add what you want, tell me how wrong I am. Tell Me something

Your point is well made Al.

Keep it simple. Start basic. Ad recipes and spices as you learn

1) learn to make heat
2) learn to control heat and smoke
3) Add Food
4) Watch food
5) Eat food
6) Burp!

Much can be said for simpler is better...the most important thing is to have fun.

Add enough beer to the mix and the meat does not even have to taste that good

Well Al no two smokers cook the same thats for sure. I say if you like the way your meat turns out and the family approves thats all that matters.

I agree, What works out East doesn't work out West (sauces and rubs)

That reminds me if I don't start brewing soon it'll be a dry summer! All tied up smoking!

Truer words haven't been said about Q. Tastes very from state to state. Even neighbor to neighbor.
