I have been watching this site for about amonth and recently signed up. Had decided to buy a charcoal/wood smoker in the spring then saw an ad for an Electric Smoker and had an epiphany! I don't have to stay up all night to have great smoked meats and decided to give it a try. Did 2 whole chickens with salt,pepper and Tony's for a rub. Great reviews from friends. Then purchased Jeffs two offerings and did a pork butt per his instructions for a Christmas party. (Sorry, no pics). Awesome reviewes from the crowd! (Thanks Jeff). Then did a whole chicken with Jeff's rib rub. Also awesome. I have been using a mix of hickory and apple wood. Can't wait to do some spares with pecan and apple wood.OK, so I should have made 4 or 5 posts, but I am a Newbie with a new toy! Looking forward to trying many of your ideas in the future.
