My husband and I decided to get a Masterbuilt 40 inch smoker as a 30th wedding anniversary present to each other. I have found the advice here so helpful and hope to one day know what I'm doing! We are from Lewisville, NC. Thanks to the folks in this forum, we are now armed with a Maverick ET-732 and a Thermapen. Thank you so much for this forum and for all the great cooks out there, sharing their stories.
