Well, just got a Great Outdoors smoker 3405 and can't wait to use her. I am thinking of doing a tritip and some ribs tomorrow for new years. The tritip is about 2 lbs and we will get spareribs. I love cooking and grilling but never smoked anything yet, so I am a total newbie here. Thanks to all for your wonderful information. Its nice to be able to learn from others here and know what works and what doesn't. Thanks and hello to all!
