First smoke suggestions?
Hey yall I am waitin on my smoker to come in I ordered a maverick 55 gallon drum smoker.(yeah I know I could of built one lol) and a maverick thermometer I think it was a Et-732. Just looking for basic tips and tricks, I think I will be doing a pork butt my first time(my girlfriend loves pulled pork) . I assume the meat goes fat down? Also charcoal method I assume I will just fill the fire box all the way up and start with the minion method. Also should I season my new drum or burn it out?
