Hi everyone. I usually don't do the "introduction route" on a new forum, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to have lots of questions so I decided to legitimize myself I am a single,70 years ancient woman who is addicted to forever trying new challenges and I recently purchased and assembled a Masterbilt 2 door -30 gal. smoker. After reading lots of forums and investigating potential problems, I converted my propane hookup to a natural gas hookup, with larger orifice, etc. Then, after a trial run to season the smoker, I decided I needed to attach a needle valve. (That part was the most challenging- kept finding wrong adapters and and the right adapters that leaked. So.. Finally I'm ready to try my first BBQ. I'm expecting to have some failed results, because that seems to be the only way I figure things out. I'm sure some of you will be hearing from me as I muddle through, but I have to say I am eager to give it a try. Thanks for reading my long story. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
