    I'm Mike from PA. I'm 40 years old and have been smoking for about 5 years now on my Brinkman Gourmet water smoker. I know they are not the best but it has worked well for me. It started out as something I just wanted to try after tasting some smoked tuna and has slowly turned into an ADDICTION, especially this last year.

    I usually smoke just chicken, fish and pork loins but this year I have started smoking ribs (God I had no idea what I was missing) and just this past weekend I did my first Boston Butt for 10 hours. I think I have past the point of no return now [​IMG]

    I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you and learing all you wish to share.

  15. Hey Mike,
    Dr. Krol here and I am a newbie also. Just wanted to say Howdy and Welcome.

    I am a heat control Gas Grill Guy and use my version of custom wood mix smoke pack . I know my ribs won't turn out quite as good as these Pro's on here but like I said I'm a Gas Grill Guy.

    I just haven't invested in a big cooker since it's me and the better half most of the time, but the retirement thingy is on the horizon and since I love to cook it is qiute possible I willhave a new toy some day soon.

    Got to go , so enjoy and keep cookin them ribs...I love "em.

    All the best.
