    I have been told to goto roll call so here I am ;) I am a long time grill master but am a NOOB smoker, but learning quick love this site. I have a Brinkman smoke-n-grill gas, I live in apartment and couldnt have a charcoal so i decided to smoke the place out. I have smoked a london broil(so nasty the dog wouldnt eat it) but since then found this site and realized not a good choice to smoke even if it is on sale, not enough fat. Smoked salmon and shrimp both where good but over cooked. Smoked a chicken beer can style, meat was incrediable but skin was rubber, see that is a common. Then i turned to what i love best PORK;) First shoulder cooked about 10 hours and Girlfriend said that what she wants for her B-Day now, love that finishing sauce. Then I decided to to finally try some ribs 3-2-1, probably the best thing i ever cooked in my life and i can grill a mean steak(remember before cooking steaks let them sit out and get to room temp before grilling). Gonna do some smoked turkey legs today, i might sneak a small rack of baby backs on there too. I try to smoke a fattie for sunday brunch eveytime too, cant forget them. Thanks for all the tips you guys rock.

    OOO bad word...OVEN! LOL...Sorry Tom running joke here. I view the oven as just another tool.. some <coughcoughbbqbubbacough> view it as sacrilege to smoking.

    I say use what tools ya got. What's in yer brine? I like the classic poultry spices...onion, celery, rosemary, parsley...

    i used a store bought marinade we like on chciken breast before we grill them its called Ashanti, they make great buffalo sauce too, love my buffalo shrimps ;) bought the brinkman cause it was a two in one but as a grill its not very good thats why switching to oven when i finish up the ribs and ABT's(cream cheese, cheddar, diced onion canoe style with bacon of course)
