Another new guy here. My sweet wife gifted me a Masterbuilt 30" electric smoker for Christmas so I have been lurking in the dark getting tips and recipes for the last couple days so I figured I would join. I hope it will cook its first meat today. Hope everyone has a great new year!
Welcome to SMF!

Glad to have you aboard!

Take some photo's of your first smoke & post them for all of us to see!

Thanks guys, I did get to break it in. I took a simple route and was happy with the results. Being it was a Christmas gift I also received some accessories from my daughter so I used what she had given me, so I broke it in with some Jack Daniels whiskey barrel chips and a brisket rub on a 3 ½lb pork loin with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. The family seemed to enjoy it and I feel that I learned a little so I consider it a success.

  Good afternoon and welcome to the forum from a cloudy and windy day here in East Texas, and the best site on the web. Lots of        great people with tons of information on just about everything.

Decisions, decisions. I got Jeff's book in the mail today " a surprise gift from the wife" and I am already excited about its potential. I told the wife she had to choose what to do first but I have a feeling it will be up to me.
Welcome dirtburn, You will find a lot of good things here, Enjoy the forum and the book. I just ordered it myself. I can't wit to get home and start smoking......
