Hello everyone,
I just recently purchased a new Masterbuilt 30. I was planning on building a cinder block smoker until I found out bass pro shop sold electric smokers. So before I went on a building spree, I wanted to see if I would like it first. I love it ! I did my first pork butt the day after purchasing the smoker. Did some baby back ribs, then some spare ribs. I have only owned a smoker for a week lol. I'm staying up late to put on my second pork butt at midnight tonight.

Welcome , lotta great food comes off of a electric smoker, you need to get a amps tray or a tube so you can run smoke easier, the chip reloaders need replenished every 45-60 minutes but the tube and tray will run 4+ hours , the tubes were sold at Walmart but they have been pulling stuff to put out Christmas stuff so may be hard to pu local.

Thanks Mike, I did do some reading before hand and I picked up a A-maze-N tube from bass pro when I purchased the smoker. I ready for some sleep now, I have had the smoker going for an hour and its seems to be settling in at temp.. I'm using a mix of hickory and apple pellets in the tube now.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Just pick up a Mes 40 gen 2/with remote off craigslist for $60 this morning.. The guy said he used it once and its been sitting in his garage since 2016. My wife asked if I really needed a 2nd smoker lol. I might try modded this one with the PID upgrade but it's in such nice shape, I'm not sure.
