Hello all from Hackettstown NJ, the World Capital of Smoking (maybe not yet)

  1. Been smoking using a barrel New Braunfield charcoal smoker for a couple of years, but I have finally given that up;  I broke down and just purchased a Dual Fuel Masterbuilt smoker that I minimally modded (RTV gasket around the door) and calibrated the thermometer.  Just seasoned and then ran my first smoked beef ribs and chicken quarters that are a class above what I had been doing the past 5 years.  It was easy, had a great smoke ring (used a cast iron pan for the chips just placed ON TOP of the supplied chip pan).  Did I mention it was easy?  I used to almost dread getting up so early to set up the barrel smoker and fight with it all day to only get a so-so smoke.  This time, the temp was on the money at 225 for nearly the entire session (other than for the chicken to finish in the oven at 420 for a crispy skin).

    I will be lurking about.  See ya'll.
