I'm new to the forums and wanted to pop in and say Hey! I am Brian from Central Texas. I have been smokin for quite a few years. Most of it has been with your traditional firebox smoker. I have smoked on manufatured and homemade as well. You learn over the years that this nothing more than primitive art at its tastiest! My most recent cooker was a Char-Griller Duo. This was pretty nice for an all-in-one pit. I am very happy to announce that I have just today added to my cooking arsenal. For Father's Day (Early) I received the 40" Stainless Masterbuilt Electric Smoker.....I am STOKED...no pun intended!! I have never smoked on an electric smoker so this is sure to be an adventure. If anyone has tips or questions or just wants a chat please feel free to hit me up. Until next time Smoke it UP!
