View Full Version : New Smoker From California

Hi Everyone,

I am very happy to be a part of this forum. I figured I would let you all know a little about me. :)

I am a 25 year old software engineer from the Central Coast of CA. I am married with two children. I am new to smoking , but have been BBQ'ing since I could stand.

I have a MasterBuilt 30 digital model. I am hoping to expand further a some point but this is my start for now. So far I have made chicken thighs and a pork shoulder and am amazed with the quality and taste that can come so easily from this.

I plan to start cold smoking or at least low temp smoking sausage and such. Any recommendations on that? I know the MES 30 does not Smoke well below 180 degrees from what I have read.

Thanks in advance to everyone, and thanks for letting me be a part of the forum!

Everything you want to know about the art is here for the asking or browsing. google cold smoker at the bottom of this page, and see what I mean!

Welcome aboard Derrick, glad to have you as a fellow Brethren here.

I hope to see you in the Q-Talk forum.

As far as your question; I belive you can smoke at 100 in your MasterBuilt 30, but you can also cold smoke with a cardboard box with the use of an A-Maze-N pellet smoker.
