Just landed on SMF to start learning by reading.
I recently got a Smokin-It Model 2 - yes...it's electric, and I'm going against my purist tendencies. I've got some minimal smoking experience using a smoker box on my propane grill as well as smoking game on a drum smoker - but in the case of the latter, I wasn't the guy tending fire, keeping temp, or choosing woods. So I jumped into this electric while I have a busy career and a couple young girls - wanted to spend a couple years getting my chops down on recipes and wood selection, while keeping the equipment process a bit easier.
I hunt birds and big game, so I'm looking forward to years of field-to-table meals. And my wife loves game and smoked meats...didn't know that when I dropped the ring on her!
Looking forward to the learning and the next meal...
