Thought I would introduce myself. I live in Alexandria Louisiana. I have a masterbuilt smoker. It smokes good but I don't like the fact that you cannot scrub the grills. The plating on the grills is as thin as gold leaf. You cannot use anything abrasive at all on the grills. So I'm waiting on smokin-it to get more model 3s in and order me one. I love smoking and I've started playing with making my own sausage too. I'm 49 and about to have to look for another job. GE bought my company out a few years ago and now are consolidating 5 factories to Jacksonville florida. I'm upgrading smokers while I can still afford to.
