Hello from Central Florida!

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by dvdslw, May 19, 2012.

  1. Hello, my name is Dave and live in Apopka, Florida which is just northwest of Orlando. I have been smoking for quite a few years with 1st the bullet type charcoal, then the Brinkman side firebox type large charcoal smoker, and now thanks to the "b-day gift to myself", the Masterbuilt 40in electric unit I bought the other day at Sams. I wasn't really looking for one but the price seemed good @ $299 so I just bought it. I will admit that I have been a lazy smoker lately and would start ribs in the oven then transfer out to the smoker for flavor so the electric unit is the way to go for me. I seem to have re-sparked my interest in the art that is smoking and hope to learn and share as much of the good and bad that comes along with this type of cooking. I bought the smoker on tuesday and seasoned it as per directions, then smoked some baby backs just to get a feel for the new appliance. All in all I was pleased with the outcome but there are some tweaks that must be addressed to make the end product something special. I will post over in the equiptment section about the mods I have planned and post back with the end result. Thanks!
