Howdy folks - originally from VT, but relocated to SoCal and picking up my first smoker (Masterbuilt MD20074719) - I think here it's called the MES40, but I really can't tell - there seem to be many options for that moniker. I have an A-MAZ-N pellet tray and a blow torch on the way, too. Already had an aptly named Smoke thermometer from Thermoworks for my grill adventures.

I look forward to learning from you all! Am I missing anything essential? :D

Thanks all for the warm welcome :) I think I'm just going to dive right in and try a brisket this weekend!

The brisket was good, but a challenging smoke. I'm debating a full write-up...I probably should decode my photo notes before I forget it all. Yesterday I did some chicken drumsticks over apple to give myself an easier project. They came out great, but 2.5 hrs was a little too much smoke I think. Anyway, since you all were kind enough to welcome me, here are some food pics :)

Looks good from here. Don't be intimidated by Brisket. Repetition will solve all of that. Nice work.
