I just joined the forum after lurking around for the past several days. I have been grilling for years but want to get into smoking and real BBQ, I just purchased a Brinkmann Trailmaster and have already used some advise when assembling the unit (used some hitemp silicone and build a firebox basket). My first ribs are smokin as I type this. I look forward to learning from the folks on the forum. I can tell by reading that this is a great community and I'm excited to make some good meat.
