My name is Jimmy. I live in Niles, MI. I've smoked twice. First was pork chops plain ol smoke no frills. Next I smoked a ham. No brine, just a applesauce and brown sugar glaze. With tips from this site. Soaked some applewood ships and then placed that water in the water pan of a Masterbuilt 40" elctronic/electric smoker. On loan from my uncle.I have four wonderfull children(7-G,5-B,3-G,1-G) and a beutifull wife to feed. lol. Now I'm hooked and want to buy one. Altough, MJy uncle said I could borrow his anytime. So, we'll see. Thats all for now. I love this site and will be recomending to fellow smokers. Chat at ya'll later.

Welcome Jimmy,


Glad you decided to join us.   Go ahead and buy yourself a smoker.  Once you get started your Uncle will be wondering where his smoker is all the time!

I agree, buy your own smoker 'cause once you get the addiction, you just can't stop.  You'll wear out a path between your house and your uncle's place!

I bought my first smoker about three weeks ago. A 30" MES digital. I have been wanting a smoker for a couple of years now. With a sale at Bass Pro, an online $20.00 discount coupon, free ship to store, and a $50.00 gift certificate left over from last Xmas it all came together three weeks ago. I had a lot of reservations about buying a smoker. High maintenance, won't maintain temps in the cold, won't maintain temps on windy days, and constant problems maintaining smoke. It didn't work out that way. It's truly a very simple smoker to use.
