My First Forum... ever

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone,


Since I was so clever selecting a profile name I guess the secrets out that my name is Brad.   I live in the good ole USA... down south in Alabama...  


I'm brand new to the smoking world and have only been grilling for 5 months or so (mostly chicken thighs).  For grilling... I bought a Chargriller ACORN and have absolutely loved it!  Would love to have gotten a BGE but the $'s were just to much for me to start with... I also have a gas Brinkman 4 burner but I mostly just use it for burgers and hotdogs now...


Because of my new found love for outdoor cooking I recently purchased an electric smoker (Masterbuilt 40': 20070311).  I've never used a smoker before but am really looking forward to it.  I plan to season tonight!  


I read a lot on the forum when selecting my smoker and ended up finding it on a Black Friday sale at Academy for $200!  



Any mods, tips, suggestions, etc. are greatly appreciated.



Looking forward to learning from you guys and sharing anything I have that may be of value!

Brad welcome to SMF for the smoker mods check

For easy step by step check

You may want to update your profile with location, for when you have a question and your signature with the smoker type. Have fun
