Hello from Maine

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by technodestructo, Mar 31, 2014.

  1. I stumbled upon this forum while researching smokers. So I thought I would sign up and say hello. Beau here, I live in Bangor Maine. I am slightly new to smokers but have been around fire, meat and coals most my life. I use to live in the country and have had my share of grills. Now the wife wanted to be in the city so I sold all my grills and now live in the top floor of a building. Lucky for me I have roof access, So I just went out and purchased a masterbuilt pro 30 electric smoker.

    I assumed the folks owning the building would appreciate not having a roaring fire on top of there place. It is not out of the box yet. I am still a bit wherry about if I chose correctly.

    My concern is the weather. Even though I have roof access..I did not say the access is easy with a smoker in your hands. So once it is up there..It is there the whole season. There is no cover and I can not build any type of shelter up there. I bought two smoker covers and figured I would wrap the hell out of it after use. I can use gas up there but thought the electric might be easier in the long run. 

    It is not coming out of the box until my a-maze-n pellet gear gets here. I ordered it right after buying the smoker. So I still have a bit of time to swap er out for gas but leaning toward keepin the electric and hoping for the best. 

    Anyway..That's what is on my mind with out writing a book. Hello All!

    Would you be the only person with access to the smoker?  I bet you could find a way to wrap it up or put it in a storage box so it isn't in the weather all the time.  Now if everyone in the building can get to it I wouldn't leave it up there because there is no telling what you find living in it when go to use it.

    Hello Beau, welcome SMF. I live in Old Town.

    Are you living in downtown Bangor?
  7. Yes indeed. I am smack dab in historical downtown bangor. Soon all the bar life will be searching for a new smoke joint that they will never find.. Haha. 
    It is a private rooftop so nobody else will be using it. Maybe Il electrify it just in case lol. 

    Thanks everyone for the replies.
