Greetings everyone, Been smoking for quit a while with various upright barrel type smokers, charcoal, electric, and propane. Just recently purchased a Masterbuilt electric. So far I have smoked cornish hens a shoulder roast and just this weekend I did ribs using the 3-2-1 method. They came out great! This little black box smoker is a whole lot easier to control than any other I have had. Looks like I am discovering smoking all over again.
