Hi everyone!! I'm a newbie to the forum. I've had several smokers in my life and they just got used occasionally. Last year I sold a great Brinkman horizontal smoker that I'd had for years and rarely used. Sold it for $50. I'm kicking myself now. For convenience sake I bought a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker a few months ago. I works pretty good and I like the convenience of not having to constantly monitor the temp. I'll probably add a charcoal smoker as I get more into this. Any ideas on horizontal vs vertical?? Love reading your posts in the forums and I hope to contribute as I get better with the smoker. Usually I spend more time in the kitchen than out on the smoker but I'm working on that...especiall now that summer is near. I claim the kitchen and my wife is fine with that. I cook and she cleans up...can it get any better than that????
