    Hi all.  Just joined a couple of weeks ago, but just getting around to speaking.  I am a beginner when it comes to smoking, but hope to obtain a lot of information from this site.  Thanks in advance for all of the help!

    Probably should have listed my smoker. 

    I have a MasterBuilt Digital Smokehouse that my wife gave me as a gift.  Even though she didn't say, I think she wanted me to start on something small before upgrading to a larger smoker.  So far, it has served me well.

    Thanks!  I am a fan of free, so I will try it out.  I 'lurked' on this website and a couple of others and learned a few things to make my baby back ribs taste like I was an old hand the first time.  The second time, they were so tender, they were impossible to cut and keep neat.  I have since learned how to fix that from some of the things I have seen on here.  Looking forward to learning a lot more.  Thanks again.

    You'll be smoking like a pro on that MES. You might want to check out the Amazing Smoker. Used in combination with a MES, it makes it real easy to get consistent smoke.
