Hi everyone. My name is Sharon and I joined the forum over a year ago but haven't introduced myself or posted until now. I just bought a Brinkmann Gourmet charcoal smoker and finished up the mods last night. I did the first smoke in it today (without food), to see how it worked and to season it. I can't wait until I can put food in it. My first foray into the world of smoked meat is going to be ribs (surprise). I look forward to getting to know you all.
