Hello All - Just got my first smoker (Masterbuilt electric.) The larger of the two models available. I've been grilling and doing indirect cooking on my 5 burner BBQ for years, but always have trouble getting the temp much below 300F. So, took the plunge and got a new toy for the backyard. Time will tell if I got the right equipment or not. I'm heavily into Harleys, woodworking, cooking (includes the outdoor kind too!), writing and hosting web pages. By day I am a computer geek, working for a local major Christian radio network. Motto: "If it is slower than me, it is food."
