Hi guys, My name is Steve. I am from West Newton, PA. I just ordered my 1st smoker. It is an old smokey electric smoker. Should be here next week. My level is 0(unless there is a negative) I am very handy in the kitchen and on the grill but am new to smoking. My job will only allow me to have 1 smoke a week. My 1st one will be ribs. I have an idea on what I will do for my rub-I used to make ribs in the crock pot so I will use a similar one. Still learning on the 3-2-1's and the 2--2-1's. I'll be sure to post pics of what hopefully is not a disaster next week. A little about myself: I'm a car nut, golf nut, and cooking nut. Sell cars for a living a was referred here by a customer that bought a truck off of me. He also talked me into buying the smoker.
