Hi, my name is Eric and I'm new with the smoking of foods, I recently inherited my dad's Master Forge vertical gas smoker after his passing. Last night my wife and I finally done a brisket in it and it turned out GREAT! I browsed this site for some quick info, and have that and "beginners luck" to credit it's outcome this time. lol I'll be checking out what info I can on gas grilling also so I can be well rounded in my cooking and hopefully NOT in by mid section!!
