Picked up a Masterbuilt XL earlier this week and today is the inaugural smoke. I have some venison jerky going now, some bourbon bbq venison snack sticks waiting on deck, and some baby backs to complete the hat trick. I have to say the that in the short time I've a member on this site, I picked up some great tips and it's very much appreciated. I'm new to smoking but feel extremely comfortable and prepared after going through this site. I'll post pics when it's all said and done.
