Been smoking for a long time , BUT AM ALWAYS LOOKING TO IMPROVE . I have a Brinkman electric smoker and have become pretty good with it . But JUST LIKE you I want to know all I can and improve my cooking . Triple B Q = Buddy Burk BBQ My name is Buddy Burk and I am the BBQ cookoff champion of my Famliy . LMAO .... All of my cousins think they can kick my tail with their fancy cookers but have yet to beat me in the taste tests with family as judges ! I live in Mesquite , Texas and also have a home out in Mabank , Texas Smoking and or cooking is very hard work and I appreciate hard workers and advice .
