Hello everyone I'm Josh and live in the Kansas City area. I've become quite skilled over the years in the grilling department, but I'm new to smoking. I purchased the 30" Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite smoker at Cabela's the weekend after Thanksgiving. I picked up some good tips already from this forum, so I decided to join. I smoked meat (baby back ribs) on Sunday and they turned out pretty decent for the first run. After eating good BBQ in KC over the past 15 years, I look forward to making some of my own!
