Hey everyone my name is Cody. I'm from Nebraska. I recently got rid of my offset smoker and got a charcoal bullet smoker. I grew up on charcoal and that's all I've ever used. Today I got a Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite as a Christmas gift. Before I assemble it I'd like to modify and make this little guy into a great smoker. Also will be getting the XL elite in few weeks... Slowly gather stuff to make my trailer smoker build but it's pushed to the back burner due to wrestling season. Any thoughts or pointers on the elite mods would be helpful. Was looking into insulating outside with hardibacker board seems to work good unsure best way to install. Looking forward to growing in the smoker world and glad to be a part of a great group. TIY!!!
