Hello, My name is Cory I'm from the beautiful state of West Virginia. I'm a member of the USAF, they have me living in Colorado. I'm new to smoking but I have done 3 times. I have smoked a Boston butt, pork ribs, and beef brisket. The first two turned out really well. However the brisket came out tough as leather. I'm hoping to learn a few things here. Thanks for letting you me be a part of your group.
