Hello- My name is Allison and I am from Port St Lucie, Florida. I just purchased a Masterbuilt 30 inch electric smoker. I am very new at this. I purchased a beef brisket a few days ago to cook inside the house and my husband suggested now might be a good time to purchase a smoker and try the brisket. Its been in all day, read some posts on the stall and ended up wrapping it about an hour ago. The temp is now up to 179 and we are patiently waiting for this delicious smelling brisket to finish! Thanks to all for taking the time to write such great posts which allow newbies like me to try smoking. Happy New Year!
