Hello Everyone-- huskerfan1414 here coming at you from Nebraska. Got my first smoker for Christmas from my fiance. It's a Masterbuilt dual-fuel electric smoker and after my first smoke I'm very pleased with it. I've been lurking the boards since before I even got my smoker and felt the need to join finally. Had my first smoke today and after a little panicking it all went well. It was quite an experience. As I told my fiance while my pork was smoking, "this must be what it's like waiting in the lobby for the birth of a child." A lot of excitement and anxiety! Found a new hobby. Can't believe all the great information on here. Hopefully with more experience I can offer some advice that can be helpful to someone out there the way you all helped me with your great advice. Thanks!
