I just joined this forum this morning, and already I've gotten great advice. I'm a Valley Forge, PA guy transplanted to Central New Jersey nearly 25 years ago... There is a reason New Jersey is called the Garden State - just avoid the NJ Turnpike and the northern half of The GSP, and you'll get a better understanding of the place. So, my kids gave me a Masterbuilt electric smoker for Christmas, and I've already tried it out 4 times. I really need this site, as this is my first foray into really smoking meat. So, I am really excited to read all of the great recipes and tips out there!
