Hello everyone from northeast Ohio! I bought my very first smoker yesterday, a Masterbuilt 40" propane from Cabela's. I haven't seasoned it yet, but I can't wait to get it done and start smoking, even though it's only 5 degrees! I am mainly going to make deer and beef jerky, probably smoke wild turkey and fish. Any input on this smoker or recipes are much appreciated!
