Hi everyone, I am excited to find a forum that has so much information on smoking. I am 65 yrs of age and retired. I am raising my 9 yr. old grandson until he is 18, God willing. I have been married to my wonderful wife for 37 yrs. I consider my self very fortunate for having my wife (Pam). She owns a Pawn Shop in Moore Oklahoma ( Cash Now Pawn ). I use a Master Built electric smoker with time and temp control and glass door. This unit is good for smoking anytime but especially good for bad weather smoking. I have had this unit about 4 years with out any problems. Could use a bigger wood chip tray. I use a Char Griller 5050 with side fire box for smoking and a propane grill for grilling, I have had this unit for 6 yrs. with out any major problems. I like to fish, make knives, distillation of liquids, and make horns to blow from various horned animals. When time and body allows I like to golf. We like to get in our 5th wheel trailer and travel Oklahoma and Texas, this is a new experience for us. We can do this because we are home schooling our grandson. Be happy to answer any questions regarding this post. I have been a backyard smoker for a while I still consider myself a rookie.
