I have been frying turkeys for about 10 years now and decided it is time to try smoking.

I have 6 frying pots but no smoking equipment yet.

The wife loves pulled pork, but does not like allot on smoke flavor.

So this could be a challenge starting out.

Wish me luck.

Thanks

Welcome to SMF!!!

 When you start smoking  and get ready to smoke a butt Use a fruit wood like apple or pear or peach.

 This will impart a nice smoke flavor ,But it shouldn't be as heavy as pecan or oak or hickory.

 Stay away from misquete

Welcome to the SMF. If your wife is not too keen on the smoke flavor, you may be able to limit the amount of wood you choice for smoking, or choose a milder type of wood. It's all good my friend.
