Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. I'm new to smoking and this forum has been extrememly helpful in so many ways, and has inspired me greatly to try lots of new things. I originally tried to do some smoking on my gas grill, and while it went ok, I just had to invest in a real smoker. I have a Masterbuilt XL propane smoker, and I've cooked in it a couple of times so far with great results. Just want to say this is a great site with lots of helpful people, and the 5 day e-course was very informative as well.
