I wanted to go ahead and get signed up and introduce myself since I became the proud owner of a new Masterbuilt Electric Smoker (30") at Christmas! I'm originally from a small town outside of Baton Rouge, but currently reside in Houston, TX. I'm not entirely brand new to smoking as I have assisted my brother in many many cooks in the past. But this is my first piece of equipment that will allow me to smoke my own meat. Very much looking forward to learning & sharing with the community. Cheers!
