Hello, Greetings from Louisville, KY area. I am not new to forums. I belong to a vrod forum and understand forum etiquette. Most importantly the vast amount of great information that is available. Thanks in advance... I just received my first smoker for Christmas. A Masterbuilt Pro. I don't have any experience with using a smoker but, I am looking forward to the journey. I wanted a smoker to make ribs in. I never really thought about all the other options I could use it for. I will definitely have to spend days reading and learning the art of smoking from you guys.
