    Picked up my 1st smoker yesterday.  Master Built XL.  

    Put it all together today.  Wiped the inside down with white vinegar and then canola oil(don't tell the wife.  she was out of PAM). 

    Lit the fire with some hickory chips and it is seasoning as I write(does typing constitute writing?).

    Let cha know how it goes.  [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for the welcomes.  

    Seasoning day 1 was interesting.

    Found out 3 things

    1.  The chunks will catch fire even on low with stock tray.  Gonna get a cast iron skillet at the 2nd hand store (wife volunteered).

    2.  Definitely need to install stove gasket on the door leaks from both the top half way down both sides.  Nothing traumatic but yuppers needs to be done.

         Along those lines HD nor Lowes in So Cal carry it.  ACE however does.

    3.  On low it maintains 225 let it season again today(wife just wanted to smell the hickory).

    Looking forward to cooking this week.  

    Once again thanks again for friendly welcome!

    Welcome to SMF glad you joined us. You may not need the stove gasket material remember your looking for Thin Blue Smoke (TBS) which is a very light blue or maybe even no smoke but the smell of the wood burning (if you can smell it so can the meat) Have fun and happy smoking

    Welcome to SMF. Glad to see ya breaking in the new smoker.  One suggestion - look on the right side where the ads are. Look for the A MAZE N SMOKER  and get the 6X8 and some dust.  It will make you a better smoker from the beginning. Lots of us use them here with great results
