Hey there, I'm Chris. I'm from So. Cal.  I'm new to the forum and new to smoking. I just got a Masterbuilt 40" Electric Smoker for Christmas. I've used it once so far and cooked up a tri tip. So far so good. I'm looking to try out 2 racks of baby backs tomorrow. I also have a Char-Griller 5050 Duo that I grill on. Anyway, I'm looking to gain as much knowledge as I can from the guys here on the forum and hopefully get really good at my new found hobby.

Hi Chris welcome to the forum. If ur doing baby backs I would recommend the 2-2-1 method. 2 hrs on smoker then 2 hrs wrapped in foil then 1 hour unwrapped and turns out AMAZEING. I usually buy at least a 3 lb slab.

Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything.
