Hello all, from unseasonably warm Phoenix (yes even for this time of year it is warm) I am really happy that I found this web site. I found it by looking for information about smoking some ribs. I used to do a small amount of smoking about 20 years ago, when I owned a Smokin Joe by Brinkman, but just was never satisfied with what I could do with it. In the end I just used the Brinkman as a Weber styled grill and gave up the idea of smoking food. This past Thanksgiving I tried smoking a Turkey (indirect heat) on a built in gas grill that I have, and was less than happy with the outcome, so I began looking at options. I am retired now, and can spend more time 'playing' around with the smoking idea, and after doing a bunch of research I settled on the Masterbuilt Pro Dual Smoker. I liked the idea of the separate boxes on it....the idea that it was an easy compact smoker, and lastly I liked the price. Figured I could get into the smoker, and not have to take out a bank loan to do it. I have not done a lot yet, as I have only smoked a couple of racks of St. Louis ribs, and a small Pork Loin, but will say that for my first time in (20 years) I was not at all disappointed. I think I am going to love this little smoker. I look forward to chatting on here....and who knows I may get good enough to even contribute some of my tricks.......(if I end up having any ) !!
