My husband bought me an electric smoker for Christmas. Very excited to use it, but don't quite know where to begin. The model is a Cookout Supply Co. - he got it at Academy. It's my first and I wanted to see if I enjoy smoking as much as I do grilling. The smoker came with little if any, instruction. I have cured it and smoked a pork butt yesterday that turned out pretty well. I know that it can be better. Any suggestions on where I might find instruction on how much wood chips to use and how often to add, do I keep the vent closed or open, etc.? Can't wait to try some of the amazing recipes that I've found on this site once I get the "basic" understanding down :). Thanks alot!
