I'm in Chester, New Hampshire and I have always wanted to get into Smoking Foods. Well one of the Members (Luv2Q's) on here posted yesterday that Tractor Supply was having their winter clearance sale. It was on the Masterbuilt 30" Glass front electric smoker which is the one I was reading about on the forum as a guest. The price was 50% off, so I wasted no time and ran out and bought it. Thank you Member. (I'll post your name after I look it up again) Well all I've been able to do so far is put it together. ha ha ha They didn't have any bags of chips to buy, but on my way home from work today I stopped at the Apple Orchard in town and found an old broken limb, so I took it home. I'll make chips out of it before this weekend. (Bark on/Bark off???) I hope to season it tomorrow after work. The manual says to run it full temp for 3 hours and then add wood chips and run it for one more hour. Does that sound about right? OK enough for now. Thanks for the wonderful forum.
