Newbie here, I’m Chek from your favorite corn, cow, pig flyover State Wife got me an amazing electric smoker this past spring and I’m pretty much making my new grill she got me last fall obsolete. So far I’ve done several amazing racks of ribs, chicken drumsticks and thighs, just did my first Boston Butt Roast but to date my wife and in-laws are all about my smoked cheeseburgers. Looking forward to exchanging ideas and trying new things! Smoke Nation

Up there, leads me to believe yer further south🙃
I’m between the 80 n 30 corridor and YES I erred by omitting bird hunting...mosquitoes along the Iowa’s river have been getting pretty meaty over the past few years..bwuahahahaha
Seriously though the Pheasant population has made a remarkable recovery the last year or two.
Looking forward to all this site has to offer and thanks for the welcome

I'm just west of St. Louis Missouri . Was up there one year , and a gal asked me " Hows everything down south ? "
I said " How would I know , I live in St Louis "

Welcome from central NY! Smoked burgers are awesome. More so when you also smoke the cheese. I just put the burgers in my smoker at 225. Let them smoke until they get around 120 IT. Then sear and finish to your liking on the grill.

totally agree Steve, smoke burgers really can’t be beat IMO
I’m around the same smoke temp, throw cheese on last 10-15 minutes until melted...so good
The cheese that melts off the burger onto the foil, cooks tasters... dang near make a person wanna chew on the foil, fillings be damned...lol
