Getting Started With My New Smoker
March 9, 2013 7:49 AM Subscribe
I just bought an electric water smoker
on Craigslist. I am excited about the possibilities for DIY bacon and home-smoked salmon and brisket, but I have never used a smoker like this before and don't really know how to get started.

What are some easy, straightforward things I can prepare that would ease me into the world of smoking? I have done the Alton Brown smoked salmon in a cardboard box
thing before and it was delicious, but that is the extent of my BBQ / smoking knowledge.
I am leaning towards a Boston butt or some other chunk of pork - we're not huge fans of smoked poultry but are certainly open to trying something new. Ideally this would be a recipe that I could finish this weekend, so maybe something to brine/rub overnight and then get started early Sunday morning.
