Hello All, Nice place you have here. I have been searching the web recently for some new ideas on great food. Smoked meat is one of my favorites and I like to smoke over a foil bag of chips on my gas grill, smoke in my charcoal grill and I like to smoke over a real wood fire too, open pit style. Now that the weather is cooling down, football season is cranking up and it's time to feed a crowd gathered to watch the games on Sunday. I'm from MD and yes, I'm a Ravens fan. You people are much more hard core about your smoking technique, preparation and equipment and I am very interested in learning. Brining I understand, low and slow I understand and thin blue smoke I understand. But from looking around the last few days, I got a bunch more to learn so I hope you don't mind a bunch of dumb questions from 'anuther noob'.
