So, I've been stalking the forums for at least a couple years now. I visit from time to time to view the smoker p0rn and steal recipes. I finally decided to join after seeing the beautiful smoker build that "atcnick" completed. What a sight, especially for a man without plans! I was impressed, so had to join and congratulate him.

I am fairly new to smoking. Been doing it a couple years in my Masterbuilt 30 in. Vertical Digital Electric Smoker. Started with simple things like potatoes and other veggies, then on to salmon and trout. I once did some jerky in there and didn't like how smokey it was. I guess being so thin, the smoke just penetrates right through? It was like eating meaty charcoal sticks. Hated it. Any advice on that?

I would love to branch out in to more items to smoke, but for now, just enjoying what I've been doing.

I really like trout with pecan wood smoke.

My name is Matt, and I'm in Utah.

Thanks for the forum! Its lots of fun!
