New to smoking.

  1. My name is Jeremy and I just bought a Masterbuilt Extra Wide Propane Smoker.  I have helped my dad a few times smoke some ribs and pork shoulders, but planning on trying my self over this coming weekend.  I am from Dayton TN so the weather  should be fine. I am currently reading the ecourse and have seen smoking done a few times. Hoping to gather enough information to make some good meat.  All information so far has been very useful.

    Welcome to SMF glad you can join us.  We are big on Pics and love to help everyone out.  Remember the only question that is dumb is one not asked.  You will not find a friendlier place to talk Que on the web.

    You are going to fit in just fine.
  11. I am planning on smoking this weekend with my new Masterbuilt XL propane.  I just got it together last week.  Is there some kind of seasoning I need to do before I actually put meat in this smoker.  Again I am new to smoking.  Also I have seen a lot on Mods to this smoker involving wood pan and the water pan, any suggestions there?

You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course.
