Just wanted to introduce myself, I'm Dukplukr, live in Illinois just north of DeKalb. My kids gave me a Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite electric smoker for Christmas. Putting it together today and seasoning getting ready for my first attempt at smoking. Hope to learn some valuable tips here and expand my knowledge. Avid hunter, ducks, geese, turkey and deer. Have to use "regular" meat until the seasons come around again. hopefully will have learned a lot before then.
