Twice smoked


Joined Jun 10, 2006
Hi, my name's Robert, and I live in the northern neck of Virginia (not to be mistaken with Northern Virginia, where the liberals reside!) and I'm new to this smoker deal. I bought a Masterbuilt 7-in-1 smoker at Bass Pro Shop in Charlotte while at the Coca Cola 600, and have used it twice, only because there have only been two weekends since then. It's one of the round stainless ones similar to the Brinkman.

Whoever came up with the 3-2-1 formula made me look like a pro. I used alder wood to smoke three racks of back ribs, and they were absolutely fall-off-the-bone wonderful Thanks!

Today I smoked two butts, and they turned out great! Thanks for all the tips on time, temp, etc.

I'm looking forward to learning more about this and trying different recipes, different woods and different meats.
