    After going through 3 simple charcoal smokers, I got a Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite propane smoker from Cabela's for my birthday. It's been seasoned and I'm smoking meat today.  We will see how it goes. I am a little concerned about how often to open the door to check on the wood chips, how long to leave the wood chips in the smoker and what to do with the vent/damper (those are not addressed in the owners manual).  

    I generally smoke pork butt, brisket, turkey and ribs. Thanks for offering a board with so much information.

    These were the first out and they are soooo tasty.
    The pork butt was not so pretty. It was dry and tough. I think I'll have to foil it next time.
