Just join the forum yesterday, I am glade to find it. I have done some smoking in the last couple of years. I still need to learn a lot more. I've only smoked a few things, Turkey thighs and legs, pork ribs, small pork loin. I have a "Brinkmann Gourmet" electric smoker. I will be ordering a MES 40" electric in the next couple of months. It has to warm up a bit before I can fire up. I also have tried Dutch oven cooking which some stuff has turned to ashes. I hope to smoke some sausage this spring after I get the new smoker. Unit last October my wife and i did a lot of camping here in Minnesota, she had me sell the works. Well I hope to here from some of you, I am glade to be here.
