    I wouldn't call myself a total noob, but I've been smoking for over a year now and am still learning new things every time I smoke. Because of low funds, I'm using a cheap Brinkmann I bought online. It has a big pan of coals on the bottom, a water pan on top of that, and two small racks for the meat. Its good enough for the time being, but it could NOT be used for a decent sized group of people.
    I'm basically here to share recipes, learn new techniques, and to report failures and successes.

    Hello there, and welcome to the SMF. Don't apologize for the Brinkmann, many members have started on them, and some are still using them. It will give you some experience that will help in the long run. It's all fun!

    Billy:

    Nice to have you on board. Even though you have some "Hair on your Chest", you will find Jeff's 5-Day e-course very good. Check it out.

    Make sure you tell us about your smokes and send in some Q-View.

    Take care and have fun.

    Welcome Billybones! I Have (9) ECB's to cook on. Don't feel bad about this unit. I love mine. I can fire up two of them and get alot of food out of them. I also have a trailer unit in case some one gets serious about cooking. With mine I can go charcoal,wood, electric, or propane...according to what I have the most of at the time of the cook. Need any help? Don't hesitate to ask. I'll be glad to help. Happy smoking.
