I just got a new smoker for Christmas, a Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite 30" Black Electric Smoker w/ Meat Probe. Our family just moved onto a homestead in Northern Saskatchewan (Canada) and we will be raising our own animals. I plan to make our own sausage, jerky and smoking most of our meats. I'm very excited! This forum looks great, I'm sure I'll glean a lot of information.
