Not totally new to the forum. Been lurking for a little while off and on. I just recently retired my old ECB and got a vertical gas Masterbuilt smoker. Very excited to try it out. Just finished curing it according to the instructions.
I've always had a love for smoked meats. Growing up as a boy my family were big on fishing and hunting. I always remember my grandfather smoking fish in a home made vertical wood burning smoker. and getting me to add wood to the firebox when the time came.
The delicous fish and sausage that would come out of that thing is something one could never forget. I think thats why I have such a love for smoking.
I recently just got into it last year when I picked up a used ECB for next to nothing. After doing loads of jerky on it and a few racks of ribs. I quickly got hooked and really wanted something with more space.
This is a great site I look forward to chatting with all of you.
