I'm new to smokers. My college age kids gave me a Masterbuilt gas wide vertical smoker for Fathers day. name is Mike Live in the Finger Lakes region of western New York. Smoked for the first time Fathers Day. Never got rave reviews like I did that day, Chicken, sausage, pork chops and Rib Roast. All came out great. Noe I just need to learn what I'm doing.
