Hi all! I'm Kathie, and I live with my husband in central Pennsylvania. I love to cook, especially now that I'm retired and I've been grilling for years. So now I am looking to buy a smoker, and I've been trying to decide what kind I want/need. The two main considerations are that I want to be able to smoke all year (and we get temps in the teens and 20's) and I don't want to spend a pile of money (at least until I'm sure that I like doing this!!) I have it narrowed down to two (I think) -- the Masterbuilt 30" electric that's on sale for $179 at Lowes OR the Masterbulit dual fuel that's at Home Depot. From what I've been reading, I am leaning towards the electric, but any guidance would be much appreciated. I'm looking forward to learning about the ins and out of creating great barbecue!
