    Greetings - New Member

    Hello - I've been a lurker on this site and have used some of the recipes and tips to help me in my new adventures in smoking. I bought, what I guess you could say, is an introductory smoker - a masterbuilt 30 cubic cm smoker w/propane, not electric, two months ago as a birthday present. So far I've smoked a 12 pound pork shoulder (used both the carolina bbq sauce and a texas based one), an 11 pound pork belly and a 9 pound heritage turkey... I find this site very helpful and that is why I decided to join the pitmaster forums and support those that have helped me and countless other newbs in the free discus posts and such.

    I'm located in south jersey - I'm 39 years old, never really got into the whole outdoor cooking thing aside from the typical burger or steak night. I've always been keen to cooking indoors though, and really enjoy cooking large feasts and entertaining.. I'm hoping this translates well to the outdoors, and so far, it has.
