     Decided to give smokin meat forums a whirl.  Looks like there are a bunch of knowledgeable smokers here.  Lookin for tips, advice, and ideas from pros and novices alike.  Flavor profiles, injection preferences, cook temps/timelines, and such. 

      I built my own smoker using a 500 gal LP tank.  It is a reverse-flow stick burner.  Temp differential is about 15 degrees from end to end, with a bit of a hot spot at the bottom, next to the fire box.  First build, and it works far better than I would have ever dreamed.

      I have competed in a few KCBS events to this point, and looking to up my scores a bit. Hopefully this forum will be the avenue to a more consistent smoking experience

    Howdy Joe.  Welcome to SMF.  Sounds like quite a rig and that you are well on your way to upping your scores.  Like my signature says, "I'm not competing, just eating," so my preferences are geared toward my personal tastes.  You should get lots of ideas you can play with though on the competition circuit.

    Have fun!
