    Hello all!

    I live in Washington, DC as my name might suggest.  I have long been jerry rigging my propane BBQ into a smoker, but those days are finally over.  I have received a free Masterbuilt Pro Propane/Charcoal upright smoker.  Yes.  I am like Hank Hill with Propane.  I love the stuff.  I have a chemistry background so getting to play around with a more precise energy flow makes me a happy camper.  Nothing against charcoal, but its too imprecise for a lot of my projects (by imprecise, I mean I suck at it).

    Played around with my smoker and did four racks of baby backs last weekend (5 hours at 200-05) and people are still raving about them.  My next project is to make a gigantic batch of applewood smoked salt this sunday.  I have splatter screens and the like -- hoping to pump out 12 pounds in a day with all day smoking and a 5 hour cycle.  Done it before on my BBQ, but never in this quantity (Christmas gifts for friends).  

    I stumbled on this forum and I look forward to learning for y'all and contributing where I can!

    Cheers to the Meat!
