Hello everyone. I am brand new to the smoking world (unless you count eating it). I just picked up a Masterbuilt digital electric smoker from Cabela's yesterday. As I am typing this, my pre-seasoning process is just wrapping up. I debated as to what kind of smoker to go with, but decided to go with an electric one with a digital temperature control. I figured there would be less for me to screw up. I found this forum via a google search and after browsing through, it looked like a nice spot to visit and hopefully learn some tricks of the trade. I have decided to jump right in and smoke some brisket today. I have the brisket basking in the glory of a nice spice rub and have some hickory chips soaking in some H2O. Once the smoker has completed its preseasoning, I will drop the temperature and begin my journey into the smokie unknown. Wish me luck.
