I'm Tom from Las Vegas NV. I got a Masterbuilt electric smokehouse to see if I like the idea of smoking food. I got a cheaper analog one first to try it. I now wish I would have gotten the digital one for the removeable bottom pan, digital time and temp settings, and the load the wood without opening the door. I bought the rub and sauce recipes from Jeff and I'm going to make them today. I made some fatties that were way too salty with store bought rub. I am also diabetic so I will try to go light with the sugar and molasses. The Texas rub should be good for me. Later today I will try some spiral cut hot dogs and some hamburgers (Jeff's recipes). Tomorrow I'll do some beer can chickens if they have some good ones at the store.
I'm a 56 year old fat guy trying to lose some weight which is really hard with all these great food choices for the smoker. :)
I work as an electronic technician and have since 1979.
I have had some good and some not so good stuff smoked so far. The brisket was not to good, needed to be more moist and tender. The pork loin was too dry. The tri tip was awesome and the chicken was too. The mac & cheese and the first fatties were great. Second fatties too salty. The beans were very good but spiked my blood sugar :(
Anyway I'll probably be asking many questions from you pro pitmasters :)
