I am new to the forum and joined after reading Smoking Meat: The Essential Guide to Real Barbecue. Great book and really helped with my smoking. I live in Severna Park, MD and have been smoking for the last 4 years. I have a Masterbuilt 30-inch Electric Digital Smoker. It is my second smoker after having a cheaper charcoal smoker for a couple years. With 2 kids the electric smoker makes my life a bit easier. I look forward to getting advise from you all.
