New #1 Owner
« on: May 17, 2017, 04:47:17 PM »
Like so many others here I decided I love great smoked meat and am fortunate to be in an area with some awesome choices.  But nothing beats doing it yourself.  Spent about a year thinking about it and doing a little research, but when I finally got serious, it became apparent that only a few companies make a high quality electric smoker and it was even more apparent that no one touches the value of Smokin-It.

My new #1 arrived last Wednesday and was seasoned that very night.  It was christened with cornish game hens and baby back back ribs the next day.  Last Saturday was a trip to the local competition BBQ store to get wood (pecan, apple and sassafras), gloves and of course the Maverick 732.  Also stopped by the meat market to get a 9 lbs.  pork butt. 

The butt was brined using the DM Brine last night and is in the #1 as I type this. 

Just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks to all the board members who respond and share their knowledge.  As a complete novice, I felt comfortable jumping right in thanks to all the helpful posts here.  Looking forward to sharing more as I learn.
