Just joined the site.
I received a smoker for Christmas from my wife after asking for one for about four years. My father and best friend both do quite a bit of meat smoking.
I am an avid hunter and fisherman, so most of what I'll be smoking will be wild fowl, venison and fish. But will probably do a bit with pork and chicken also.
I have a Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite. I just seasoned it and am about to attempt a couple pieces of venison I have been marinating the last few days.
I have absolutely no clue what I am doing. The directions that came with the smoker were pretty poor. Don't know if I am supposed to add water, how long to cook things, on what temperature etc. So I am just gonna fly in blind and figure it out as I go. Hopefully I won't set the place on fire.
