Hello Everyone, Newbie (Rick) from Creedmoor, NC which is 20 miles north of Raleigh/Durham Airport just checking in. I just received a Masterbuilt 30 for Christmas and ready to get smoking. The temperature gauge was broken on arrival so still have not seasoned it. However, I will keep you informed as I get things rolling. Hope to learn alot and maybe even meet some of you soon. Thanks.
