Hey everybody. New to smoking but I've been lurking here for about 2 weeks looking at pictures and reading. Did my first 3 smokes and started prepping my July 4th smoke and decided to post and say hi. I run a modded vertical 2 door Brinkmann charcoal smoker from Home Depot. So far I've done 2 pork butts for pulled pork and a beer butt chicken. Today's smoke is my first attempt at beef, a 4.5lb sirloin tip and a 4.5lb roast. I'll throw another thread up in the beef forum with pics. Thanks to everyone that posts, the knowledge I learned from reading and observing here really has made this a great start to the summer.
