I have been increasingly interested in smoking different meats and experimenting with different techniques in the past 6 months or so. I see this as almost an art instead of a hobby. I purchased a Masterbuilt 30" electric cooker a few months back and a traditional New Braunfels smoker last month which isn't all that great. I will be upgrading to a Lyfe Tyme smoker within the next few months hopefully. I look forward to absorbing as much as possible and someday being able to contribute to new guys like myself!
