Whats going on everybody? Just want to thank everyone for the advice. I am new to the smoking game. Bought a Brinkman smoker at a garage sale about 4 weeks ago (thought it would make game day better... War Eagle!!!). The first weekend (after doing some research on the smf) I butterflied a venison tenderloin, stuffed it with crabmeat and wrapped with bacon, and did chicken quarters. Thanks to the heads up I got on here everything turned out great. Since then I've done chicken 2 more times and spare ribs twice and I cant get enough of it. Just wish I had thought of this earlier in football season. Oh well, at least I'm ready for next year.
