New to smoking

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by rick32040, Jun 8, 2013.

  1. Hello. New to smoking but experienced in eating. Just starting out and was researching what smoker to purchase as a beginner and found this site. Forums helped out a lot. I purchased a Brinkman Trailmaster this past Christmas and been learning ever since. Live in North Florida so plenty of time all year tp keep practicing.

  3. Just joined the forum a few minutes ago and look forward to sharing information.  I've purchased a Masterbuilt 40" electric smoker and am getting ready to try it out for the first time and smoke a tri tip. I found a good rub/recipe online at jennsprintablerecipes I live just outside of Annapolis, MD and hope to use the smoker year round.

    I do have a question about the smoker.  Even though I bought a cover for it, is it advisable to store the smoker in my garage when I'm not using it?  I'm a bit leery about moisture damage to the controls if I keep it outside.  Any advice would be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Pat
