I'm Mark from Dover, PA and have been smoking for about 5 years. I started on a Luhr.Jensen "Mini Chief" electric smoker. This little smoker was very inexpensive and I thought a good start for someone who was just experimenting to see if they liked smoking. I was able to smoke a large variety of items with it: salmon, beef jerky, pork shoulder, ribs, nuts, cheeses, salt and pepper. It has served me well and will for many years to come. This Christmas my wife got me a 2 cu ft. Masterbuilt electric smoker model 20070411., and we have been having a lot of fun with it. Yesterday I smoked a pork shoulder for pulling and a beef tenderloin for the neighbor. The neighbors were very happy with their loin and we will be eating the pulled pork today B4 for supper. We've also started smoking our steaks with it and love the flavors. I really want to try smoked chicken wing's next!
