I've been perusing SMF for the last couple weeks. Been wanting to get into smoking for several years now. I ran across a deal on a brand new Old Country Pecos smoker the other day on Craigslist that I could not pass up, so I took the plunge. I look forward to the challenge of figuring out how to run my new smoker. I seasoned the pit on Saturday, after reading several threads on here, and now I'm ready to get some meat on it and see how bad I can screw it up!!!
