Hello everyone. My name is Mark and I am from Saint Marys, Ohio. My family goes camping during the summer and I love to grill over the fire. Taking the step to smoking seamed like the next logical step.

I just bought a 30" Masterbuilt Electric Smoker and I can't wait to try iy out.

Hey Mark this is Mark and I will tell you when I got my first smoker I learned things through smoking chicken and pork butts as they are the most forgiving and cheapest cuts to work with to hone your skill.  Ribs are also fun to learn with but I will tell you now the 3-2-1 or 2-2-1 methods are your best bets.  If you are not sure what those are the search bar at top will be your best friend always as you learn things on this site.  Have fun smoking and welcome to your new soon to be addiction.
