An other new guy checking in. I'm Dave. I live in Northern Colorado, where it was 65 and sunny today! I have been a fairly successful griller (and generally enjoy cooking) and finally bought myself a smoker a month or so ago. I have a horizontal off-set smoker that I believe to be home made - I found it at a neighbor's yard sale. It's made of pretty thick steel and has nice horse shoe handles welded to it. I have used it only once so far, with semi-terrible results. I was tempted to add a photo since you guys like the Q-View, but it was too graphic (very badly blackened pork tenderloins). After that experience I went looking for info and found these forums. If only I found you guys 6 hours earlier! Who knew you could have too much smoke? Nice thick white billowing smoke for 6 hours....yeah, it was that bad. I have already read quite a few posts on here and look forward to being a better smoker. I hope to add some recipes and entertainment along the way. Good luck with all of those smoked turkeys, I think I should wait before I tackle one myself.
