Hey guys. I'm Jeff. I am 25 and i live in ohio. I'm new to smoking and came across this website. Figured i'd sign up and soak up all the good info thats been shared. Been interested in getting a smoker for quite a while and just received one as a christmas gift along with a few bags of wood chips. It's a Masterbuilt Gas smoker. The directions were terrible and i've already found through this site that i have to season it and replace the wood chip pan. Other then that it seems like it's going to be a pretty good starting point for me. If anyone wants to point me to a few threads they know of that could help me out i'd appreciate it. I'm looking to make a few batches of jerky first. Have to buy a few things before i can get started. Hopefully i can get it rolling next weekend though. I cant wait!
