Hi... have been with this forum since 2003 but not really getting the hang of this new forum. Think this is my first post in about 6 years. Have a model 55 which is built like a tank and has been working without a hitch for the last 15 years. Do most everything with it including salmon, double smoked bacon, turkey and the usual ribs and brisket. If you haven't tried it, look for the recipe for "Smokey Joe's". Very good for serving to groups. Would like to try a meatloaf but wife says she doesn't want smoke on her meatloaf. I guess that's ok but maybe I'll do one just for myself some day.
