Food came out really good for my first time ever smoking anything. I cooked a brisket, a pork shoulder and some beans. I used hickory and apple for the wood. On the pork shoulder I rubbed it with mustard and then put a memphis rub over that, then the brisket was just a memphis rub, I got busy cleaning up the smoker and forgot to dry rub the meat first thing so it would have some time to absorb the flavor so i just rubbed it and stuck it in the Q. I think am gonna have to adjust my rub though, I think I had to much brown sugar in it and it caused it to get a little past the point of being bark, that and my heat got away from me once for a few minutes so that didn't help.
But all in all it was a lot of fun. Now I just need to get some wood delivered to the house because buying it from Ace hardware or the BBQ store is WAY to damn expensive!!!!
