Hello from just southwest of Chicago!!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi everybody!!

My name is Marc and I've just started truly smoking the last 2 months. I've used wood chip packs in my grill but finally got the bug and bought a Master built Sportsman Elite propane smoker after buying Jeff's excellent book. I explored the mods and went with the 8 inch cast iron pan (works like a charm) and the Maverick ET-732 (it's awesome!!!).

Thank you all so much for the advice, you guys are spot on!!

I did my virgin run (after seasoning of course) with two whole chicken following Jeff's recipe. My daughters and wife are now believers and submitting requests!!

Sunday I'll be doing a pork butt and some stuffed jalapenos!!!

Anyway thank you all so much for the great info I've found all ready!!!!
