My name is Scott and I'm from Mobile, Alabama. I'm interested in learning more about Smoking and Bbq. I am an electrician with twenty-two years experience. Married nine years without kids. We have three indoor cats and many outdoor cats (strays we feed). US Army veteran 1982-85 Air Assault 3/187th Infantry and 2ID South Korea . My first smoker is a Brinkmann Smoke'n Pit King Smoker. I paid $10 at a garage sale for it, replaced the grates (3), both bowls, cleaned and seasoned the interior yesterday (burned charcoal to finish the season). I'm in the process of smoking my first two butts. Brined for 10 hours and rub this morning allowing to rest for one hour before starting the smoke. One butt weighs about 11 pounds the other about 8.
