Hello from the "rainy" west side of Oregon. New member here. Wife gave me a new Masterbuilt 7-in-1 Smoker/Grill (thanks to Amazon Wish List) for Christmas. Not tried it out yet, as I'm waiting for the rain to stop and for the LP tank splitter to arrive in the mail so the new toy can share a tank with the regular grill on the back patio. I've done some smoking and jerky-making with good results over the past several years using a Big Chief, and am looking forward to trying my hand at sausage making, bacon, and getting in to the bigger cuts of pork. Also planning on building a cold smoking chamber to try my hand at that. I've been enjoying all I've read here so far and am looking forward to participating. Chris "MtnGeek"
