I would consider myself a greenhorn at smoking as I had bought my first smoker just a few years ago. Its a propane Smokey Mountain and I absolutely love it. Nothing beats firing up the smoker on Saturday morning and let all those great smells fill up the neighborhood. Of course the best part of smoking is eating the end results. Mmmmmmmm. Looking forward to learning some new things here and get some great tips and ideas. Glad to be part of the community!!
