  7. My third brisket attempt tomorrow twelve pound brisket some rub beef broth injected one hour per pound @ 225 no crutch cant fail...... ha will post my results
     
  8. Thinking about my next smoker a masterbuilt xl. Does anyone own one? Any general info on performance would be awesome.
     
  9. yes sir i do!! best thing since sliced bread..tons of room, havent done any real mods to mine and still churn out awesome Q..but maybe thats just cuz i know Q! lol.
     
  10. Does it hold temp easily?
     
  11. yep it sure does. i havent done any of the gasket mods or seals cuz i dont think theres enough heat or smoke escaping from the doors or hinges to gimme a hard time. it definitely gets the job done and then some....for the price its definitely worth it 10 fold IMO.
     
  12. currently have gosm large model. it looks a lot like the mbxl but a tad smaller. love my old vertical propane.

    Welcome to the form. I have only been smoking since last fall and had little success until I found this forum. Since then, the members have got me on the right path with their generous sharing of knowledge and experience.

    I look forward to getting ideas and learning from your posts.
