Hi everybody! I'm Mike from Brooklyn, NY. Been lurking here for a little while now and finally decided to join up and participate. I started smoking a few years ago with a charcoal smoker I purchased from Lowe's. Charcoal and I don't get along well, so I made the switch to a Masterbuilt electric, and I couldn't be happier. It's like a big easy bake oven with the promise of delicious, smokey meat! I've stuck to baby backs mostly, but have been experimenting with chicken and pork tenderloins. In fact, I made four tenderloins for the 4th of July and they were fantastic. I'd like to tackle a pork shoulder or a brisket by the end of the summer. All I know is that I really enjoy smoking, and the people who eat what I've smoked are happy too.
