One Response to Smoking Meat

  1. I just recently got into smoking as well (with the Masterbuilt 30″ Electric too!). Isn’t it the easiest set it and forget it way to cook? I discovered all the different woods that can be used to create different flavors, I hope your experimenting goes well this summer! Enjoy it bud!
