I've been reading this site for weeks and finally decided to join in. I'm a country girl stuck in NJ trying to cook the foods I grew up with. Last year I started smoking with a Brinkman Smoke n Grill and loved it! Chicken and pork are all I did. My brisket was terrible everytime I tried, so I gave up.
I am currently searching for an electric smoker 30 or 40. The window is cute and all but with our winters, I don't want to risk temp fluctuations from heat loss.
After all the info everyone here has posted, I still can't decide which Masterbuilt model to start with, there are so many with differeing reviews. Any advice on that would be great!!! I don't have any "building" skills to make too many modifications. I will be getting help from AMNPS for the perfect smoke once I choose a model.
I BBQ 2-3 times a week from spring to Fall. My goal is to finally master a smoked brisket and tender ribs, without cheating. Everyone here is so helpful, I know this site will bring me from Smoking newbie to family Pit Master :)
