I would like to introduce myself. My name is Matt and I currently live in Green Bay, WI. I have lived a few other places in our GREAT country, but for now this is where I will call home. I will ALWAYS be a diehard PACKERS fan (hence the screen name smkndabears). I have always loved the taste of smoked meat and have been talking about getting a smoker for years. Well, my finance got sick of hearing me just talk about it and bought me a Masterbuilt Duel Fuel Smoker for Christmas. My fist smoke was a brisket and a couple whole chickens in the middle of winter (I think it was about -20 wind-chill). It turned out OK, but I definitely left room for improvement. I have smoke about 5 more times since then (chicken and ribs) and it gets better with every smoke. My ultimate goal??? I would love to smoke for a living off of straight wood. At this point I am smoking off of propane. There is just something about busting my rump on a product and then having friends\family tell me that the meal is great. I would love to hear that from a stranger!! I do enjoy hunting, so I do have an interest in smoking wild game and making it taste great. I have grilled venison and we didnt really like it. I would like to become confident enough that I could smoke ANY meat and it would turn out wonderful. Wishful thinking??? Maybe, but that is my goal.
Thanks for reading and you will hear from me soon!!!
