Hello everyone, my name is Eddie and I live in SW Michigan. I absolutely love grilling and now (by the help of a few friends) have been turned on the world of smoked meat. I never realized there was so much out there for your everyday Joe who wants to duplicate something they tried at the local Ribfest. I've been looking around for some info and stumbled upon this site. I have to say there is a lot of nice tutorials and info that I hope to add to someday. So, basically I am a rookie at smoking meat and just recently purchased my first smoker, which I was able to figure the best one for me from this site. I wound up buying the Master Forge vertical propane smoker from Lowes. I seasoned it last night and now I just can't wait to fire that bad boy up this weekend. One of the first things I plan on smoking is apples from a tutorial somebody posted on here. Then I plan to do some ribs. Any body got a good rub recipe they wouldn't mind sharing? Thanks guys, keep it smokin'
