Hello everyone, I hope all is well. My name is Mark and I'm new to this smoking business. So I recently purchased an electric smoker which is the Oster Smoker/Roaster (I believe some people call it little red). I've had nothing but unsatisfying results. I spoke with one of my co workers that uses an actual smoker and he gave me some pointers. I purchased the specific smoker because I live in a apartment and don't have the luxury of a nice backyard. If I did, I would totally invest in a nice smoker as I love barbeque. So I've been doing research myself and it looks like a lot of people here have a lot of knowledge. Also, the community here looks really wonderful and helpful. I was reading a post right before creating this account on how someone needed help with smoking a turkey. So being said, I decided to make an account on here and get some gear advice. Who knows, I may be able to contribute one day by providing great knowledge and advice to others. Thank you everyone for taking the time to read this introduction! I'll be posting on the forum after this on my issues currently.
Welcome to the board! Yes you can ask just about anything here, people will help. It can take a few tries to get the hang of a new rig.
Thank you BlueWhisper! I agree with you on what you just stated. I already asked so hopefully I'll get some great advice since I am smoking chicken again tonight. I need to perfect this thing before Thanksgiving! Thanks again.
