Hey All I'm Craig from Ventura, California; about 55 miles NW of Los Angeles & maybe 25-30 miles south of Santa Barbara, on the coast. I just bought a Master Forge Smoker from Lowes yesterday, & have been doing a lot of online research. Found this forum & seems like everyone knows their stuff, & also seem very friendly here too so I decided to join! Please bear with me as I acclimate to my smoker & related questions, re: set up, recipes, rubs, marinates, etc ! I look forward to learning & sharing!
