    Hey guys, just thought I'd say Hi. My name is Derek and I live in Michigan. I'm pretty green when it comes to smoking, but am learning tons reading through all the forums. I've been thinking about building a smoker for awhile now, but figured the parents wouldn't be too happy with it sitting in the backyard while I'm away at school. I plan to smoke venison snack sticks and jerky along with other things, so I figured I'd go with electric so I could keep my temps low. I did a lot of research and I ended up buying a Masterbuilt 40" old generation yesterday. Can't wait to get smokin!
