    Allow me to introduce myself!

    Always wanted a smoker, but never bought one. Then my wife told me that one of our neighbors posted a Large BGE for sale on facebook, saying that her husband only used it twice in two years. Later that night, he was helping me wheel it down our street. Since then I'm fixated. Been buying much needed replacement parts, accessories, and upgrades. Decided to consider an investment in a temperature controller, which led me to this site. Looking forward to doing a long cook this weekend so that my friends and family can have something tasty to eat while we watch our Falcons in the Super Bowl!

        Welcome to The Pit. May I suggest a pork butt for your first long cook? It's probably the easiest meat to try for a first long cook. Here is where to start if you haven't already been there. You could also add a chuck roast or two at some point if you'd like some variety. Chuckies are handled the same way as butts, but they do cook quicker and need a beef rub instead of a pork rub.

                      Welcome to The Pit SMOKIN! Thanks for the support and nice to have you here! Congratulations on the BGE. I love mine. What temp controller did you buy? I use a PartyQ from BBQ Guru with rechargeable batteries (I don't have power at my cookers).

                            Thank you all! Very much appreciated. Look forward to good times ahead. Since it's my intro thread, I hope it's okay if I ask one question that could otherwise be answered through a simple search. Won't happen again, so here goes:

                            What's your favorite out-of-the-box dry rub for pork shoulder?

                            I believe that a dry rub on the outside of a pork shoulder is key to success. And would love to know your thoughts. Thank you in advance.

                              From a grocery store, the Weber honey garlic rub with something else like chipotle or cayenne pepper to give it a bit off heat can be good. Mccormick's Applewood Rub is also pretty tasty. If you can get to a more specialized BBQ store, the Kosmos Killer Bee Honey rub works well.

                            Welcome Smokin! I am new to this site too but have tried Meathead's Memphis Dust on Pork Chops and it was awsome. Note that it doesnt have any salt in it, so be sure to read up on the concept of Dry Brining......two cooks and I am a believer and convert!

                            If you havent purchased your temp controller, i use a CyberQ from the BBQ Guru. it was pricey but it is a truly amazing piece of equipment.

                            Enjoy the cook (Pork Butt is a great choice) and the game. I cant wish you good luck because i am from just outside of Boston and a huge Patriots fan!
