Greetings from the Upper Midwest.

  1. Hello all. I have been reading and lurking around for quite some time now, anticipating getting a smoker. And recently I did! Great birthday present, by the way! I received a Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite 30". Fired it up, seasoned it and smoked some trout from Lake Michigan in her this past weekend. The fish was awesome!

    I live about a half hour North of Green Bay, WI, but frequent Michigan's Upper Peninsula very often as this is where I am from.

  7. Thanks guy, for the warm welcome. I have read like crazy on here; yes, familiar with the search bar. Thanks!

    This is not the exact smoker I have now. This is the one I unwrapped. She seen that Cabela's had the same smoker but with temp probe for cheaper, so we returned this to Fleet Farm and went there.

    After it was all said and done, the internal temp probe wont add any more functionality to the smoker (To my surprise. Look forward to a thread to me remedying that!). I was under the impression that the smoker would shut off, or do something magical once you hit a target temp. Nope. It's okay though. I still love the hell outa' it!

    Cool, man. You're going to have fun on this board.
     
  11. That's for sure. I've read so much on here. So much. Thanks to this place alone, it's brought my confidence up in outdoor cooking. Don't get me wrong, I've always loved grilling, but now- NOW I'm cookin'! 

    I absolutely love having a smoker. In the last couple weeks I've managed to smoke salmon, trout, lamb, beef, pork and venison so far. And then the curing! I've done summer sausage, pepperoni, snack sticks, ham and cured lamb. Oh man, this is great! The picture of the bacon is from tonight, using Pop's brine. Brilliant, just brilliant. 

    I think a smoker is a gateway toy. Because I "had" to buy a stuffer and now I need a slicer. I mean, I NEED a slicer. Haha! And now that I have a stuffer, I HAVE to make potato sausage.. and brats.. and kielbasa, and.. and... See?
     
  12. I like your setup,  meat looks awesome
