Hey everyone, new member here. Just picked up a MasterBuilt Sportsman Elite XL (fathers day gift). Looking forward to smoking everything I can get my hands on. I've been lurking as a guest, researching, and finally went with that. I intend to mod it like most others here w/ a stack, seal, using a large bbq wok thing, and a 12" cast iron w/ lump coal, large rectangular roasting pan for water pan.. Going to install temp sensor / meat temp wireless guage...and possibly create a removable insulation system for winters. Wind skirt etc. Possibly a cold smoke attachment...
Location: Ct. I BBQ year round, and intend to smoke year round as well.
Currently bbq'ing w/ a charcoal grill, charbroil infared (can get great low temps on mine). Can't wait to get this smoker together, and some pictures up as I mod it.
Great forums, learned a ton from reading here. I have some of my own rubs, from slow bbq, can't wait to smoke!!
