Having had  made history around here with my old Performer. The parts are becoming problematic (I have seen pics of rebuilts) and it's Winter. I researched and got the, new for this year, Masterbuilt mdl 20071514,1100 watt ,NO window. The Smokers and More subforum shows its image as a Master Forge?!?

I saw master forge at lowes and dismissed it. My job with AT&T has me in a lot of backyards and the owners of these people with Masterbuilt electrics are a fevered breed. So I don't have a smoke ring (lacking CO) and I'm not being judged around here on that. It's the ability to eat a Butt with Ritz crackers as the spoon!

I'm looking for new techniques here. Aromatics I like.

(song lyrics redone)

I like Pork Butts I cannot lie.


Smoke gets in your House.

Please neighbors, don't call the fire dept-I'm working here...
