    Good morning all!

    My name is PJ and I am from Davisburg, Michigan.

    I got my first smoker about ten years ago (Brinkman Charcoal Smoker) but have been getting more serious about the smoke for the past 10 months.  I have since "inherited" a Brinkman  "All in One" propane smoker, grill, deep fryer that my in-laws said "didn't work" (read as -  have no patience!) and in May I purchased a Masterbuilt propane two door smoker that I have been working to death.

    I have had favorable results on the All in One doing salmon. I have done pork butts and bacon wrapped pork loin in the Masterbuilt.  My biggest smoke yet was 60lbs of butts (half pulled, half sliced) for my wifes family reunion.  So far everyone has been impressed (or so they say) but most importantly I have learned A LOT and have noticed improvements with each smoke.

    I am happy to be a member here and hope to expand my knowledge and share my experiences!

    Welcome. You'll love this forum. I just started smoking last fall and had limited success until I found this forum. I have learned so much from the kind members. They are generous with answers to your questions and there are a ton of great ideas in the postings. One of the ways I learned the most was posting my projects with pictures and I always got support, advice and suggestions for differing ways to do things.

    I am sure you will love this forum as much as I do.
