Keep it simple until you get comfortable with your smoker. They are all different and you need to get a feel for yours before you get adventurous. Besides, it is better to build you confidence with easier things first. Naked fatty would be a good place to start..

Pork butt and fatties.

Never cook just one fatty. Trust me on this.

Pork butt/shoulders are very forgiving, but I generally just cook whatevers on sale.

I recently did a first UDS cook with pork spares and a fatty. This was an excellent 1st cook as the fatty was ready just under 2 hours and the spares were finished in about 5.5 hours. The slightly fatty spares are also forgiving as well.

The shorter smoke time reduces the concerns associated with a first cook. I have since ventured out in the last few weeks to fatties, brisket, babybacks, chicken and corned beef with very good results...other than the corned beef that was salvedged for dinner tonight.

Pork butt is simple. So is a cheese stuffed meatloaf. Meatloaf is faster.

First off, welcome to the site, you will really enjoy it!

I would lean toward the pork butt, pretty easy and a relatively "forgiving" piece of meat.

That being said, there is a lot of great advice, let us know what you go with and how it all works out, good luck and enjoy!

Fatties are sort of a tradition, but ribs are always nice too. If you are still new to making Q, it is hard to mess up a butt, and almost impossible to mess up a fatty.

Have fun!
