Where Can the Right Masterbuilt Electric Smoker Recipes Be Found?
 
There are numerous Masterbuilt recipes that can be found on the internet, but knowing what separates the really good ones from the ones that aren’t so good is not always clear. There are a few things you can look for to see if a recipe is the right one for you. 
 
Using Ingredients You Like: This is a seemingly simple standard that all too often gets overlooked. While it is always important to try new things, that does not mean you have to use ingredients that you do not like. While mixing different ingredients does change the overall flavor, if there is something that you know from experience doesn’t sit well with your taste buds, then you may want to leave that ingredient out or go on to find another recipe.  For example, some people do not like garlic or onions so leaving them out of the ingredients will probably not alter the taste significantly for them. 
 
Spices, Sauces & Smoker Setting: These are the basics to preparing your meat and your smoker, so the recipe should not only indicate the spices and sauces to be used, but also the smoker temperature setting you will need to get the best results. While spices and sauces can be varied, the smoker setting should be clearly stated in the recipe and closely followed to achieve the best results. 
 
Regional Goodness: Another aspect of finding the right Masterbuilt smoker recipe is in determining whether it reflects the part of the country or region that you enjoy eating food from. You should take a few minutes to research the major regions of the country and determine those areas that have the tastes and seasonings that you enjoy when it comes to BBQ sauces and other seasonings.

Once you make this determination, you can locate and try out smoking recipes that are reflective of the sauces and spices that are used in that area. For example, if you like Texas style BBQ sauces and seasonings, then you should look for recipes that reflect the influence of that area.
 
Standard Internet Search: Quite often there are some amazing recipes posted on individual blog sites. They can be found through standard internet searches and the results may really surprise you. You can tailor these searches so that they reflect a particular region of the country as well. 
Dadgum That's Good Too! Cookbook
There are also many different cookbooks available out on the internet that contain some amazing smoker recipes and many of them will allow you to preview the selected sections of their book before you buy.

There is a cookbook that we recommend by John McLemore titled “Dadgum That’s Good Too”. It has some great meat smoking recipes as well as other information about smoking that we think you will find most enjoyable and helpful.  You can find this cookbook and many others on Amazon at very reasonable prices.
 
How Do I Select the Proper Meat?
 
Selecting the proper meat is certainly important to your results. Once you have decided on the recipe you want to use, then making a trip to the grocery store should be the next thing on your list. Whether you have decided to smoke brisket, pork, chicken, turkey or some other delightful meat, you should look for a cut of meat or poultry that has been properly inspected and graded.

While smoking has been known to turn a tough piece of meat into something tender, it is preferable to start out with the nicest cut of meat to enhance the taste of your finished product. When selecting your meat, always be certain that the meat has a nice color to it and a firmer feel to the touch, with no tears in the packaging, and no odor to it.       
 
Remember that it is the “low and slow” smoking of meat that gives the best results. Many people have a tendency to get in a hurry, but smoking meat is about cooking at a lower temperature for a longer period of time. Once the internal temperature of the meat being smoked has reached its recommended safe minimum level, then it should be done. 
 
What Preparation Is Necessary Before the Meat Goes Into the Smoker?
 
To experience the vast number of recipes available for your Masterbuilt smoker, it starts with the seasoning and the sauces that are used to create the right flavor for the meat. Smoker recipes usually call for different spices to be rubbed into the meat for added flavor. The most common ingredients generally consist of salt, pepper, brown sugar and chili powder.
 
Other ingredients have been used as well, but these are arguably the four most common that you will find. It is advisable to be generous with the ingredients that you rub into the meat so that you can get the best flavor. When you are starting off with these recipes for the first time, it is advisable to just follow the directions given and later work your way towards customizing them to your own tastes once you gain some experience. 
 
After you have gained a little experience, experimenting is a good idea and it is a lot of fun as long as you do it in moderation. It is always best to experiment by making little adjustments so that you can fine tune a recipe to reach the right flavor for you. 
 
Pappy's Meat Rub SeasoningSome people like to use a meat rub, meat marinade or BBQ sauce to bring the right flavor to the meat. Each region of the country seems to have its own special variety in each of these flavorings. If you do not want to create your own flavorings, you can certainly find a good one to purchase. Amazon has a great selection of marinades, rubs, and BBQ sauces at some of the best prices we have found.
 
Of course, it is always a good idea to keep a variety of spices and sauces around so you can experiment with many different recipes. That way, when you find a new combination that you want to try out, you will have the necessary ingredients on hand. 
 
What Type of Smoking Techniques Are Used? 
 
The true art of a good Masterbuilt smoker recipe is in the smoking technique used as it should bring out the very best result in the meat. Both of these particular techniques will have a substantially different effect on the meat that is being prepared. 
 
Hot Smoking: This type of smoking technique is the most common and occurs when food is placed into the smoker chamber and gets cooked and smoked at the same time. During hot smoking, the smoker chamber will commonly reach temperatures of 225°F and above. Once the food is removed from the smoker chamber, it is ready for the dinner table unless the recipe calls for some additional steps to finish the food before serving. Hot smoking also promotes the tenderizing of meat as the internal meat temperatures reach levels between 145°F and 165°F depending on the meat being smoked.  
 
Cold Smoking: This type of smoking is reserved for meat that has already been cooked or cured. Cold smoking occurs in a separate external chamber where the smoke is pushed to add flavor to the food. During cold smoking, temperatures are generally between 90°F and 120°F. For example, foods like ham, bacon and fish have been properly cooked or prepared in advance and then are smoked through the external chamber. 
 
All in all, finding the right Masterbuilt electric smokehouse smoker recipes begins with selecting the right meat, the right spices and the right sauces, and wraps up using the proper smoking technique. Once you develop a taste for smoke flavored food, you will find a number of different electric smoker recipes that you can enjoy over and over again, and be able to create signature-style recipes of your very own, all thanks to the versatility of the electric smoker from Masterbuilt
