I live in central Virginia and been grilling for years!  However never smoked a thing, but very excited to get started.  I've been looking at the Master Forge propane smoker (fits my budget) it seems to get good reviews for the most part.  Any advise for a rookie would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

First off welcome1.gif to SMF. You have come to the right place for smoking info. This site is loaded with great info just use the search bar at top of page to find what you are looking for. If you can't locate the answer just ask folks here are willing to share there knowledge. I suggest you check out the 5 day e-course on smoking its chuck full of great info. Smoking Basics 5-Day eCourse


Second, I have the MF 2 door unit and love it. I sugest you add a rope gasket to the doors. I filled my water pan almost full of sand and covered with foil, holds temp much better. I put a disposable ban of water on a grate just above the sand filled pan
