    Ok so I only been smoking a few short months but I'm totally hooked and hungry to learn more. See what I did there? :)

    I started off with a Traeger pellet smoker which at the time since I was new was amazing for me. After a short time however 2 things I noticed, temperature control was pretty awful and I just plain needed more space. After extensive research I settled on a RecTec and man OH man what a huge difference in quality. Anyhow right now I'm using a RecTec and loving it. So far I've smoked Ribs (both dry rubbed and sauced), boston butt, and brisket. Right now I have a leg of lamb on there smoking away. I'm an IT manager by day and training to be a champion pit master by night; yeah I know that was corny but I'm a goofy guy, what can I say? Anyhow just wanted to say hey, any words of wisdom?
