Newbie from Orlando, FL

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hey there fellow smokers, I'm new to this great way of cooking. Have tired smoking ribs on my grill but looking for a better experience with my new Masterbuilt Electric 40" with remote. (I'm a bit anxious waiting for the delivery truck today!)

I've been trolling the forums for a few weeks getting educated on smokers before making my purchase. Living in Orlando, Florida gives me easy year - round weather to take advantage of doing many, many smokes! I already have a 'london broil' marinating while I wait to assemble and season my new unit! 

Cheers to some "clean plates" off the table soon.

In Leicester England. I just got a Weber Smokey mountain, it's to replace a thing I had that didn't work for anything but getting rid of charcoal!

Thanks Ryan - my posts will start today in the main forum - just got my new MES40 yesterday - needless to say I finished dinner and was unpacking, assembling the few items on the bottom and setting the racks, etc in place. I wiped it down with a damp cloth and sprayed the inside with a very light coat of "Pam Olive Oil". Set the temp to 275 and time for 3 hours. Her seasoning was ON! With 45 minutes left I put in one cup of soaked mesquete chips and opened the top vent totally - she smoked for the entire 45 minutes. Today is clean up and get ready for my first smoke in her. Got a 2# London Broil marinating. Not sure how long to smoke it - I like my steaks between medium rare and medium.
I'm also making some blue cheese butter to sprinkle on the sliced meat with some scallions and serving with a salad from the garden and some broccoli. The Cabernet is chilling!
