New to board

  1. Howdy - I'm John from from the Dallas TX area. Happy married and happily retired. We love to spend time traveling the country and also cruising,

    I've been reading the boards from several days to research before buying my newest smoker.  

    For the past 20 years I'm been been using charcoal and using a old Brinkman and the Masterbuilt 7-in-1 that I still have -I was only smoking 3 or 4 times a year - mostly brisket and pork loins. While I love my charcoal it is hard to monitor the charcoal and smoke while I am on the golf course. Today I put together my Masterbuilt 40" electric gen 2.5 and just finished seasoning it.

    I know these forums will be a wealth of info and I'm looking forward to trying to soak in as much info as I can.
  2. [​IMG]   Good evening and welcome to the forum, from a warm cloudy day here in East Texas. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything.

    Ha ha! There's only about 5 miles between the city of Charlotte city limits and the city of Monroe city limits. In those short little 5 miles are a total of fout other towns. Matthews, Stallings, Hemby Bridge, and Indian trail. Don't blink, because you'll miss it.
