Hi everybody! My name is Thom and I live in Pflugerville, Texas (suburb of Austin). I have absolutely ZERO history of smoking anything, been a bbq'er my entire life. I have a good friend who smokes regularly with a Masterbuilt electric unit so I picked one up from Sams today. Got her fired up right now doing the pre burn-in procedure, with some dry-rubbed babybacks and spareribs in the fridge waiting on the burn-in to complete. I plan on following the 3-2-1 cooking procedure.
