Hello everyone. About 2 years ago I had a smoker loaded up in the cart at Home Depot but never made it to checkout. Fast forward to September. My wife decided to surprise me with a 30in Masterbuilt for my Birthday. I was very excited because I have wanted on for so long. All I can say is she is AWESOME. So, once I got my smoker built I came here and stalked the stickys fo figure out what I was doing. I successfully smoked 2 8lb butts for my birthday and have since done several more. A few weeks ago I bought an AMNPS and have one smoke under my belt with it. The second smoke with it is in progress right now. So far I am very happy with the purchases that my wife and I have made. I want to thank all of you in advance for the wealth of information found on this forum.
