I went propane, and it is to hot for salmon/trout. Still tastes pretty good, but hard to keep under 200deg. Tri Tip, ribs, turkeys, the propane is awesome.
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!

On the masterbuilt I got that little side box and it works good.  I did put some lava tape smoker sealer (amazon) around the inlet spout and that stopped any leaks there.  It was pouring out smoke for 4 hours straight out of the main unit smoking about 20lbs of bacon.

They have a cheesy J hook to secure the side box to the main smoker unit, but the inside of the main smoker unit is too thin and flimsy, so you'll screw up the tube flange inside so I got that all straitened out and looking to come up with a better way to secure the little side smoker unit.

Never had a smoker and looking at trying one out. Black Friday ad for a masterbuilt 30" for $99. Is this something to purchase to try out a smoker?

Lots of people really seem to like the Masterbuilt smokers. I have one that I was never really happy with and now just use it as a hot-box / warming oven when I am making a bunch of stuff on my offset charcoal and wood smoker.
