My wife and I are from Spring Arbor, Mi. 3 kids and some dogs. Brand new to smoking. We will be using a Master Built duel fuel smoker from Home Depot based on our budget and the reviews we have read here and elsewhere. We have been accumulating items we are reading about, such as a wireless Ivation Dual 2 probe, an 8" cast iron skillet for wood chips as well as some heat rated silicone strip for around the doors. We are planning on assembling everything this weekend. ANY and ALL advice is not just welcomed but VERY appreciated. Our kids like to eat salads with huge chunks of meat! Anyone with advice on seasoning the smoker and advice on cooking times and temps for various meats (our family eats anything including wild game) please send us your advice! Glad to be here!
