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. Thanks!
