My name is Kurt Whalen, I'm married with 1 son. I've been an out door cooking enthusiast for years. I cook on a homade Fire Pit (37' internal diamater) sometimes using a 22' skillet, a small Weber Charcoal grill, and My new Masterbuilt Electric Smoke house. I convinced my wife to let me buy a Masterbuilt electric smokehouse (MES) when I got a bonus from work and it's paid for itself already as much as we use it. She even admitted that it was a good buy! I've been reading this forum ever since I bought the MES and finally decided to join, and hopefully give a little back to the Forum that has given my family so much. Some things I've cooked in my MES so far are: Beer can Duck and Chicken. Chicken wings Turkey Prime Rib roast - best I've ever eaten Baby Back ribs various sausages Corn on the cob - best I've ever eaten Shrimp - best I've ever eaten Salmon Brisket (whole Packer) Some things I'm looking forward to cooking in my MES but haven't yet: Fattie Baked beans Potatoes Corned beef Brisket I look forward to getting some pics up and sharing some of my recipies with all of you.
