And, Merry Happy Whatever! I'm fairly new to smoking. A co worker gave me his old electric smoker when he got a new one. I've done a couple of pork butts and a couple of Turkey breasts so far and I'll be doing my first brined (buttermilk) breast for Christmas tomorrow. My new year's resolution is to smoke something every week. My wife is very happy with this idea. As the name might indicate, I have played bass for about 30 years and still Gig regularly. I am not, however, actually a monkey.
