I have been offset smoking with charcoal for years. Being a Texan, I understand that real barbecue means brisket. I also smoke turkeys, ribs and pork loin. I would like to try my hand at cold smoking as well. I don't often have the time to dedicate a full day to fire-tending, so I am looking for an electric set-and-forget system. That's how I discovered this site. There is a lot of awesome info here. I was planning to build my own electric setup, but the Masterbuilt (with a mailbox mod) may do everything I need for less than I would spend on a build. Anyway, congratulations to you guys on creating a great online community here. It is a great resource.
