Been reading on the forum and decided to join. First off, thanks for the great reading and ideas. I have been using a smoker for about 15-20 years off and on. I have had charcoal, Propane and now a Masterbuilt Electric. MES. So far so good, I enjoy it. I am 45 years old, Natural gas service man for 23 years. Love my street bike. 4 wheelers and always a good cold bud light. I have 2 girls that are the pride of my life. If anybody need natural gas advise or help. send me a line. I can give you orifice sizes, lp to nat. conversions or just about any thing else gas related. I have smoked 4 racks of ribs, deer sausage, pork butt, sirloin roast and 4 potatos on the MES. I did the spuds today with ribs. Both were great. A first for the potatos and it will happen again. They were great. everybody loved them. Thanks again for the tips and reading Buddy.
