Checking in from Bowling Green, KY

  1. Hey Guys,

    I've been smoking meats since 2009 when I bought my first COS from Home Depot.  I immediately smoked 2 chickens in it and have been hooked ever since...

    There had been a pause in my smoking until recently.  Before I moved to BG back in 2012, I was able to keep my COS indoors and it stayed decent in shape.  Where I live now the only place I can keep it is outside and you know what happens to those COS units when you have to store them outside...So 3 weeks ago I bought the MasterBuilt 2 door propane smoker, and I've used it every weekend since.

    I've already read on here what all the popular mods to that that unit are, and some I have done, others not.  I had always cooked hot and fast on my COS, but with this unit it is much easier to cook low and slow, and for the first time I have smoked meats without using the Texas Crutch.  Every method has it uses, but I am really digging not having to foil  because I can better control the temperature with my new smoker.

    Anyway, just thought I would say hello and I look forward to reading and learning much more as I get back in to my habit.

    Can't wait to learn more about this art reading this forum. The best part about smoking meats is that you get to eat them after!!!
