    ¡Hola! from Miami

    G,day fellow meatheaders. As you can see, I'm in SoFla. There are not a lot of smokers around here but we have fair share.

    I have been lingering around here for about a year and finally decided to take the plunge. Well worth the minimal dollars so far.

    Currently I use a MB30 electric with a pellet tray. I've primarily made ribs and butts with a single foray into a lamb roast and a brisket. Ribs and butts are always worthy. The lamb roast was okay and the brisket was kind of dry. Need to work on my technique. Tried a cheddar block once but here in SoFla, there are only a few days out of the year when a cool smoke is doable.

    Hope to improve on my smoking with all the experience and tips here.

    Smoke 'em if you got 'em y'all

    Welcome from another new guy! Hey how do you like that electric smoker? I was looking at a couple of those for a "set it and forget it" dedicated smoker along w/ the weber kettle and a slow and sear as my first cooker.

    Do you have any pics of those ribs or pork butts? I'd love to see some results from the electric smoker!

          No pics. Sorry. It works well for what I do. I wish sometimes I had a little more capacity than the 30. The pellet smoker trays are excellent. Still trying to figure out the best placement and rig so it doesn't get dripped on and extinguished.

          I have found that the temp is a little off. You can't calibrate but you can do an offset using a temp probe in the box. It does hold pretty decent temp though.

          When the meat is on the table, everybody eats it. Not sure I'm the best but I'm the best at mi casa!!

                        It's a non-event here in Dade. Just some rain, which is always welcome. A few brief periods of some wind but nothing more than what we get during a strong cold front or afternoon summer thunderstorm.
