  1. My name's Chip and I'm from Pittsburgh, PA.  I am smoking my first meat, which happens to be a 6 lb pork shoulder, as I type this.  The Master Forge double door is my weapon of choice.  I got into smoking by mentioning to my wife how fun it is hanging out with my neighbor and knocking a few back while getting our smoke on, so when Christmas rolled around, I was pleasantly surprised.  She said she did a bit of research so I'm assuming the MF is prenty decent for a noob.  I gotta say, I had no clue what I was doing, aside from a few pointers here and there from said neighbor, but this place is amazing.  What a wealth of knowledge!  Anyway, glad to be here and thanks for all the help!

    Looking good so far:

    [​IMG]  to SMF Chip. You have come to the right place for smoking info. This site is loaded with great info just use the search bar at top of page to find what you are looking for. If you can't locate the answer just ask folks here are willing to share there knowledge. I suggest you take  the 5 day e-course on smoking its chuck full of great info.Smoking  5-Day e-Course  

    I have the Master Forge and LOVE it. I feel it is a darn good smoker especially for the price. One thing I suggest you try out is to run play sand in the water pan in place of the water. You will get better temps, and a much faster recovery time after opening the door. If you already haven't added a gasket to the door I also suggest you do that as well.  If ya have questions post them up there are quite a few people here that use a Master Forge.  You can also shoot me a PM if you like I am always willing to help out.
