Hi all. My name is Matt. My wife and children got me a 36" vertical propane(Cabelas brand) smoker for Christmas. I've never smoked anything before but I've been doing a lot of reading here and at other sites and am finally ready to take the plunge. I have 2 whole chickens in brine as we speak and am looking forward to a nice dinner. This site and all of you experts have been a blessing. Thanks, and wish me luck.
