I am really excited to get into some serious smoking. I have been using my propane BBQ and a smoker box to try and get that great smoke flavour but I was just not happy with the results. I decided to get serious and this morning I took the plunge and bought a Masterbuilt 30" Electric. She (Betty) is seasoning right now. Thanks to texacajun for the article on how to do this. Tonight I am going to try some side ribs and tomorrow I will take a shot at brisket. Hopefully things turn out. Looking forward to being part of the community here. Happy Smokin.
