Hello everyone. My name is Jeff and I am from Kansas City, Missouri. Go Chiefs!! I recently purchased a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker and I have already smoked a pork shoulder that turned out great. I don't have any other experience smoking meats and I my experience with grilling is pretty limited as well. I figured the electric smoker would get me into the groove of things pretty quickly with some awesome results and then I could move on to more advanced techniques. I am glad I found this website. It has already proven to be an extremely valuable resource for beginners, as I am sure pros have probably learned a thing or two as well.
