Most folks here will tell you to go with a naked fattie. Good call. :thumb:

Chicken is cheap.It you mess it up,not a big loss.

Can't go wrong with pork butt. It is one of the most economical hunks of meat to practice with and pretty hard to totally mess up.

Keep it simple while you are learning, don't get to caught up with rubs, injections, etc... I would suggest running your cooker 250+, I personally like the 275-300 range. Cook it until it probes tender.

Do a naked fatty and a pork butt or shoulder the fatty will give you something to enjoy eating while waiting for the pork butt or shoulder enjoy

I'm assuming there is a family &/or friends so ask what they like best, but keep it simple at first. Chicken, Boston butt or pork spares are always good and pretty straight forward. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Can't go wrong with that!

Chicken halves or a pork butt is the best way to start out. Easy as pie.

Start cheap - Drums, wings, thighs.
Get nasty - Fatties and ABTs
Strut your stuff - butts/shoulders and chuckies
Go long - brisket

Agreed on either chicken or a naked fattie, Fatties are good to help season too.
