Well, I was referred here by a friend from another forum, (car hobby) and have lots to learn.
I have learned so much from Craig already. I have only done one thing in my new smoker, a turkey.
My wife and I have decided that after 50 years of turkey we didn't like it. the kids insisted we stray from our traditional beef ribs and have turkey for Thanksgiving. I bought a Masterbuilt 30" digital electric smoker from Walmart for $150 and smoked my first turkey. I was damaged out of the box, but it got here the day before so we used it. I called them and they took it back and sent another one. It was damaged worse out of the box and now I am dealing with that.
I have been lurking around here for the last couple days and it seems like a great place for my new hobby. So thanks for having me.
I have no idea why I didn't take this up sooner....I guess I was just ignorant.
Anyway, I am a foody, like to fish and hunt, and am a gear head. I live a stones throw from the North end of Zion National Park, (Kolob) and just love it here. Except the beach is too far away and since I love deep sea fishing, I just can't get there often enough. Anyway, I can't wait to smoke some fresh caught trout!
