While I wait for my first smoking adventure to be done i figured it a good time to introduce myself and say thanks for a great website.My name is Dan,my family and I live in North West New Jersey. After tasting some amazing home smoked ribs while tailgating at a NY Giants game, I decided that this was for me.I convinced the wife early this afternoon that we needed a smoker. After a trip to both Home Depot and Lowes we settled on the Master Forge double door unit. We rushed home put it together,seasoned it ,cleaned it up filled it with water and hickory and threw in some marinating boneless pork chops!(we must start small haha) They have been in there now for about an hour and a half t, the temp on the door SAYS 300 but from what i understand by reading here its probably more like 250. Im going to have a look at the chops in a bit and play it by eye and a food thermo. SO again, thanks for a great place to start learning about this new and tasty world.
All the best,
