Woohoo!!! Got my first smoker. Can't wait to get started. It is a 30" Masterbuilt Electric Smoker. The first smoker in this link.


Can't wait to get my first smoke on. Unfortunately, I'm going to be travelling for a week. All I'll be thinking about is getting back and smokin' some meat!!!

Congrats mang, ever since I got my smoker life has gotten a lot better and I use it twice a month for ribs and briskets. Its gonna take some time to get things dialed in, but once you figure everything out you'll be good to go.

Do not forget to break it in by giving it a good smoke in. Unless you like the taste of paint and metallic residue all over your food ;).

Or you could just coat the inside of it in vegetable oil. Helps cut down on that.
