  1. Hello all,

    I live in Garland, TX and for the most part, I have grilled with gas.  Mostly because it seemed easier to me.  For the past couple of years, however, I have been wanting to do some smoking.  I bought a Brinkmann vertical smoker and it is adequate for some things, but now I am looking to upgrade.  I am excited to see what others have done and take any pointers or advice that any one has to offer.  I will also share my triumphs as well when they happen.  Let's do some smokin'!
