Hi All, My name is Randy and I live in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio I have never used a smoker before but have had some great meat from many of my friends. My parents were awesome enough to get me a Masterbuilt 20051311 GS30D 2-Door Propane Smoker for Christmas. Since the weather is currently freezing I will probably not open the box until March or April. Any tips, tricks, mods, etc anyone can provide I would be appreciative for your time in helping be learn about smoking. I look forward to checking out the posts in the forum and sharing my experiences as I gain them.
