Hey everyone my name is Tony from North New Jersey , never smoked before just bought a master forge 2 door propane verticle smoker i know nothing about smoking meat did some research people had said to insulate the doors with rope gasket but couldnt find any round here went to a local hardware store and found some Green egg high temp gasket cut it out best i could with 45 degree angles and got them stuck on nearly perfect let it sit and cranked it up to about 300 with some wood in the box and water in the pan let it go for about an hour then let it cool i put a oven thermometer inside and comfirmed my stock door thermometer Was off by -27 degrees also bought a cheap wireless thermometer from wally world for 12 bucks hope it will tell me when meat is done so i wont have to open doors to much.

    If you didn't read the Terms of Service notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums. Rule #11......"Off Site Links are not allowed here at SMF" is something new. There are other simple guidelines for all of us to remember as we interact here.

    If you need any help roaming around here in SMF....just give me a shout.  Happy to help any time!
