Hello all,new guy here. I have been lurking a couple weeks trying to learn of few things.Been doing jerky in the oven for a couple months now.So I figured it was time for the next step. Well the UPS dropped it off right after I came home from work.The wife got me a Masterbuilt Electric Smokehouse!! from Cabelas. I already have it together and am seasoning it as I type this. I also prepared 4 lbs of jerky to smoke tomorrow.Man I cant wait! I will have to stop and pick up some hickery wood chips before I come home tomorrow.

I got my Masterbuilt smoker just before Thanksgiving and have had in use every weekend since, the second thing I put in was a load of venison jerkey, I can't belive I waited this long to get one. I have been making jerkey fo 10 years but this was the best so far. I think you will be very pleased with your purchase.. good luck

Welcome Woody, I know you are gonna love that new smoker. One thing I will caution you about is that smoking is very addictive, you are gonna want to smoke everything, I was thinking about smoking some Cheerios the other day, but I decided not to when my wife suggested that I don't. Mind you it was just a suggestion, cause I am the boss.

Nice looking jerky. The MES has a hot spot in the right rear corner. There are a couple of different fixes. Check out the section on electric smokers. Man that sucker looks clean inside. You gotta get some "mojo" on those walls!
