You guys have a great website here. There's enough material to keep me busy reading for years! I've been an novice smoker for about 10 years...with varying degrees of success. I love to do it...but I learn by my mistakes. I recently got a Oklahoma Joe's Longhorn... ...and I'd love to really learn how to use it best, and impress my friends and family with some great Texas-style brisket (which cannot be found in Tennessee). Other interests? I'm an avid guitar player....a weight lifter....running a 1/2 marathon at the end of April...and the accomplishment that I'm most proud of?....I recently ate 5 pounds of brisket in less than 24 hours.
