Good morning from central Illinois!

  1. I'm hanging out at home in lovely Mount Sterling, IL.  I bought my first smoker in 2000 (a cheap Brinkmann offset from Home Depot) but I never really spent any time learning to use it as a smoker.  It was primarily used for indirect cooking so I didn't have to pay too much attention to my grilling.

    In the last couple of years I've gotten more into smoking meat the right way.  I replaced the Brinkmann this past summer with an Oklahoma Joe's Highland offset smoker.  I also have a cheap Brinkmann vertical smoker that I haven't used because I haven't gotten around to modifying it and a basic Weber kettle grill.  The offset smoker still gets the majority of the work.  Eventually I'll replace it with a better model, but not until I'm a lot better.

    Right now I'd have to call myself an Intermediate/Advanced Novice.  I can generally get very good results but I'm still doing a lot of experimenting with spice combinations and different wood smoke.  I'll probably consider myself more advanced once I've developed my own rubs and sauces without relying on store-bought stuff.

    If you're still awake, I'll just stop now.

  4. Thanks, I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions to keep you busy when I'm home.

    First question, does this site have a mobile app or does it use Tapatalk or something?  I'm on the road a lot (because, you know, I'm a trucker) and I don't normally get on the computer then.
  5. Some use Tapatalk on their mobile. I just use Google on mine.

    Happy smoken.
