  1. Newbie to the site here.  Have put up my profile and have taken the 5 day course.  Great info.

    Purchased a Masterbuilt XL last weekend based on recommendations here.  Got it at BPS for $179.99.  Seasoned it on Sunday (getting the requisite flames from my oak chunks) and planning my first smoke tomorrow with chicken and a ham.

    This is my first propane smoker as I have been using a cheap Brinkman charcoal for several years and it finally gave up the ghost.  The MPS is HUGE.  Have read about the mods that others have made.  Not sure which ones I will implement other than doing something about the wood tray.  I will be using a throw away aluminum pan for the water.  Will probably use the supplied water tray as my wood tray.

    I'll let all know how the first smoke turns out.
