Greetings from Winnipeg,MB

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys,


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.

As request Bill.  Heres a shot of my new Vertical Gasser right before I started seasoning it for the 1st time.


Also did some chicken legs on it for dinner tonight.  Much to my wife being extremely skeptical about cooking chicken in a smoker after I reassured her that I'd be bring it up to its correct internal cooked temp.   Well long story short.  The chicken legs didn't last long.  drool.gif

I didn't do anything special with the chicken.  Put on some jamaican jerk rub before throwing into the smoker.  Preheated smoker and got the blue smoker rolling lowered temps down to 240f cooked like that for 1.5hrs and finished the last 1/2hr at 350f to crisp up the skin.  Used some local maple I had recently aquired and had cut into chunks. 

The chicken exceeded my expectations.  It was so good.  Frankly was the best bbq chicken I've ever done at home.

Meat was super moist, smoke penetrated the skin nicely and left a wonderful smoke ring.  Was a dry smoke as well.  No water pan at all.


I have to say thanks to this forum.  I've done so much reading and research before smoking anything.  And its paid off.  So thanks folks!


What are your thoughts on my process on the chicken?
