Started grilling on a 4 burner gasser about 5-6 years ago then bought my first Brinkman Smoke-N-Grill a little over a year ago; $40 job from Home Depot. Followed a couple YouTube videos and modded it. Had fun doing it and the mods did help.
Wife got me the 30" Masterbuilt electric smoker for Xmas. Actually, she gave it to me early December so I could smoke more grub during the holidays So far pretty good, but I'm still learning the differences between my charcoal smoker and electric. I smoked salmon a couple times, a chuck roast, 2 hams and a prime rib. I miss the flavor of the charcoal but I found it a lot easier to maintain cooking temps with the electric smoker. Seems like a trade off to me but I hope over time my expertise with the Masterbuilt will improve.
Going camping tomorrow (in a cabin so not really roughing it) for a few days and bringing the electric with me. I wanted to bring the Brinkman but wife says "no-go" on bringing 2 smokers.
Been lurking on the forums past few weeks looking for recipes, general info, tips and such. Finally decided to make it official and join up! Thanks to all those who post. I've gleaned a lot of good info. See ya round...
