Hello everyone.

Novice smoker here. I have upgraded from a hand me down charcoal smoke"N grill type to a Masterbuilt GS40 over Christmas.

So far all I have done is the initial cure on it. Reading the forums, I also obtained a large lasagna pan to replace the water bowl and a cast iron skillet for the wood box.

I also plan to seal the door with some grill gasket or fireplace rope.

I have a 2 probe digital thermo to keep an eye on the temps as well.

Cant wait to get the time to do a nice butt or a few tenderloins on this thing. I'll be scouring the recipies forums for other ideas as well/.
Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything.

Thanks for the welcome Gary. I look forward to learning alot on here.

I'll add that one of my itnerests is sausage. I grind and make venison breakfast sausage using Legg's seasoning now. I want to start doing other types as well and am always on the lookout for a good seasoning recipie.
Let us know how your first smoke goes, post some pictures and when you start doing sausage be sure and post that.
