I am new to smoking meats. I was given an electric smoker for a birthday. A masterbuilt electric digital smoker with a electronic therometer. does any one have any good ideas if these are good or handy?

Pretty popular here as far as electrics go.....

Look down on the main forum screen to the Smoking Supplies & Equipment section under Electrics for more information.

Welcome to SMF....
What a nice birthday you must have had!
If you do a search on "Masterbuilt" you will find a lot of reading material....I have the MES and it is a great tool..not perfect...just a great tool

If help is needed just ask away and you shall receive..

good luck
I have 3 of them, 2 are pre recall and 1 is post recall. I do not see me using the pre recall ones until I get a adjustable vent/damper put into the top. As far as I am concerned they are a very good electric smoker for the price and the smoke they produce from very little wood is impressive.

I would say you had a great birthday, crank that baby up, get it seasoned and start some smoking projects !!!
I too own a electric smoker but mine is a char-broil. And since you have a thermostat adjusting the temp will come very easy for you. Hope that your first and every smoke you do after that turns out wonderful. Oh and welcome to Smoking Meat and like me hope you learn alot here.
