new to the forum OK with chicken but beef has been a difficulty for me, Pork is marginal.

I was gifted a previously enjoyed few year old electric masterbuilt electric smoker.  It has the glass doors but the racks are somewhat week in comparison to a grill or oven.  Are there stronger and better chrome plated ones available.  What about standard enameled steel?

I have owned this for about a year.  MY wife only enjoy's the chicken.  Everything else is hit or miss.  I've tried ribs and they come out OK for me but not for her.  She isn't a fan of ribs to begin with.  SO I'm looking to perfect the  art of this craft some of you have mastered and I want to learn.

I'll be browsing the board and trying new and different things.  Some of the things I've tried in the past on the web have given me a Tumbs or rollaids night.  Trying to smooth out the technique and looking for that mouth watering  flavor with out over dooing it?

Any pointers and direction that can be provided by you folks would be much appreciated.

Thanks to this web site, I hope to learn, Teach and old dog new tricks as they say.
