Novice smoker here. I have upgraded from a hand me down charcoal smoke"N grill type to a Masterbuilt GS40 over Christmas.
So far all I have done is the initial cure on it. Reading the forums, I also obtained a large lasagna pan to replace the water bowl and a cast iron skillet for the wood box.
I also plan to seal the door with some grill gasket or fireplace rope.
I have a 2 probe digital thermo to keep an eye on the temps as well.
Cant wait to get the time to do a nice butt or a few tenderloins on this thing. I'll be scouring the recipies forums for other ideas as well/.
