Hello from the land of the former #2 college football team in the nation. The USF Bulls. It was an exciting 1 week. Anyway, I bought a Masterbuilt electric smoker about 3 months ago after reading these forums. I am very happy with it. I had fooled around with Bullet smokers over the years but wanted something with a door and multiple racks making it easier to get at the food. I have taken Jeff's course and have had some very good results with ribs, butts and fatties. I am still in the experimental stage as far as types of smoking woods, temps and smoking times. The best thing I like about the Masterbuilt electric is that it is kind of a "load and forget" kind of smoker. Just add some chips every once in a while. If I had to monitor the temps on a stick smoker I would drink too much beer and be drunk by the time the smoke is done. With my electric smoker, I can drink too much beer and be watching football on TV. Unfortunately it is the rainy season in FL. The rain and my electric smoker do not get along together. Recently I was doing a smoke and it started to rain. A lot. So I moved it into my garage and finished with the door open. My wife, who is a vegan, still says the garage smells like a smoked pork butt. Smells okay to me. Sorry for the long first post. I do have a question though. I have a Maverick dual-probe thermometer. I have been clipping my smoker temp probe to the top rack. Will this give me an accurate smoker temp or should I put it lower in the smoker? Where is the ideal place for the smoker probe?
