Hi there, My name Christian. I just got my first smoker for Christmas this year from my wife. It’s a master built extra large gas smoker. I’m actually outside right now seasoning it up. I’m in the insurance business, and it pays the bills! My wife and I just bought our first house in August. I’ve been dying to get a grill or smoker because I can’t really help in the kitchen (my wife cooks better than anything I could try, so she usually takes over) but smoking is going to be the thing I try to contribute. As i’m typing, I’m following the manual for seasoning the smoker. I filled it with 2 cups of wood chips (i also followed some advise here on fixing the wood chip trey) and i’m Only supposed to season for an hour and then let it cool and then do it again for 30 minutes, but my wood chips stopped smoking after 20 minutes, so if anyone has any advice on that to begin with!...Manual doesn’t say anything about changing them out the first our so i’m Just letting it sit. I’m excited to join this community and hopefully to become a fairly decent smoker!
