Hello, my name is Linda and I live in Long Beach, CA. I'm retired from teaching Special Ed and have 2 grown children (read no longer living at home!) and 2 grandchildren. I have a 30 inch Masterbuilt electric smoker that I bought 3 years ago. I have only used it a few times with mixed results. I'm not only new to this group, but a newby to smoking also. I would love to learn from your experience and will try my best not to be a pest!
