I'm from the Hill Country in Texas and glad I came across this site with all you fine people.
I love smoking briskets, sausage, turkey, chicken, lamb, fish, vegetables... pretty much anything.
I've been using a Texas Star smoker/grill I picked up at HEB. It works great, but I don't usually have time to closely monitor the temp, so I decided to give a Masterbuilt 40" electric a try and so far I'm really glad I did. It's going right now for the first time and I've got a small brisket almost done (been going since early this morning) and just added a turkey breast and a while chicken. Did some chicken quarters earlier too, those are already done and deliciously flavored and tender as can be.
Happy smoking (food that is!)
