My name is Lucy, I currently live in Frisco, TX and I'm new to the smoking arena. I've been lurking on here for months and gleaning all kinds helpful info and have finally decided to jump in and participate. I have a MES 30 and have smoked several pork butts, racks of ribs and a few chickens this summer. Today I am tackling my first brisket. I've been cooking my whole life, but just joined the world of smoking this summer. My neighbor used to smoke stuff all the time, and he got me hooked, but then moved north. I had no choice but to get a smoker of my own and start experimenting. I can't thank these forums enough for getting me starting and being a great resource.
