New to the forum, but not to grilling and meat smoking. I have had a Char griller smoker for about ten years, and it has finally all but rusted through in the fire box so last weekend while looking to get a new one at lowes, I fell for a masterbuilt electric smoker instead. already ran a Tri tip through it, and it turned out pretty good. I have a sirloin roast sitting in the fridge right now waiting for tomorrow. I'm sure it will take a few trial and errors to make the transition to the electric rig (mainly not having to babysit it nearly as much) anyway looks like a lot of good info here and I look forward to learning a thing or two.

Thanks guys, and it does look like there is a lot of good info here. and I will get some pictures up here in a little while. it just went in the smoker about 9 am. I let it marinade about 12 hours in salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder with Worcestershire sauce. it was a very lean trimmed roast so I draped it with a couple layers of cheap bacon. for wood I'm using a 70/30 mix of pecan and mesquite. set the temp on the smoker at 210. think I may try to throw a few potatoes in there in a few hours and see how those turn out.
soaking in the bag.
Draped and going in the smoke.

Well, blew the timing on the taters. they had about an hour of smoke but are finishing off in the oven. dang roast "plateaued" on the temp at about 120 which on the wood burner usually gives me about 2 hours tossed the taters in and an hour later its at 141 (checked with 2 different thermometers) so its being held wrapped nice and tight.
here she is just coming out of the smoker
Smells really good, I cant wait to carve it up
I have a 4lb pork tenderloin in the freezer that will most likely be next weekends experiment.
Holy smokes, that came out reallllllllly good even the cheap gross bacon was good. I bet the sandwich tomorrow is going to be great also.
Side note, thing I am headed over to Amazon to look for a meat slicer.
