Hello All from Soggy Columbus Ohio...

  1. Hello All,

    Names Matt, and I have been lurking for a while. Been an active member of other forums mostly around Baseball. I had a son who played in college, but now has graduated so it is time to expand my horizons.

    My first smoker was bought back in the early 2000's. It is a Briknmann Smoke 'n' Pit Professional. Started smoking Pork Loins and moved to Butts and Ribs. No Modifications and it took me a while to learn her, but eventually I turned out some very good Que. Well the Old Girl is getting a bit rusty and needs an overhaul. But I was not ready to shut down BBQing while I refurbished her. So after much reading and considering I bought a Brinkmann Trailmaster Limited Edition Vertical. I did not want another Horizontal, because I plan to put the old girl back in commission and then I will have two.

    Ordered it from Bass Pro when they had a sale. It was delivered quickly but I let it sit until all the family was gone, so I could put it together in peace. I sealed it up as per several threads on these forums. I took my time and it was really nice not to have any interruptions'. First use the Pork came out really good but ride was a bit bumpy. Learned a lot though and the second smoke went much better.

    Can't wait to refurbish my old Girl and make some of the Mods to her. Maybe wife will let me get a third one in another decade.

    Thanks for letting me join.

    Matt, welcome to SMF! We're glad you're here and well skilled with your equipment. Enjoy reading through the threads and getting ideas for what to smoke. I tend to get bored with doing the same thing over again, even if I've perfected my result. Drives my wife crazy when I start trying something new and different, but she never complains when it works. I get all kinds of ideas around here.

    Have fun!
