Glad you are here.

What type of smoker do you have? Please consider taking Jeff's 5-Day Course on smoking basics.

As far as ideas on what to smoke, just about anything you can roast you can also smoke. Then there are the meats that benefit from the "low and slow" of smoking like brisket, ribs, and pork butt.

Browse through the various forums to see what others have been smoking. Don't be afraid to ask questions because the friendly folks here at SMF will make answer.

Take care, have fun, and do good!

Welcome aldb. If you're ready to get into some smokin.. you're in the right place for answers.. they're everywhere. If you can't find the answer just ask.

Maybe you should go for a nice rack or two of ribs. Try using the 3-2-1 method to amaze yourself and family. Check out the rub recipes all around you or try Jeff's Naked Rib Rub... it's amazing. Pork butt is forgiving, give that a try too. What ever strikes your fancy.

Don't be afraid to jump in with both feet.. failure is usually the beginning of greatness

Keep Smokin
