    Hey all,

       Got a Brinkman Vertical propane smoker for Christmas and broke it in just after the first of the year. In the past three weekends, I have cooked two big pork loins, two big Boston Butts and just finished eating my first Fattie! I am hooked.The pork loins were my first try and a success, but nothing special. I got two Butts at the store and read on here about what to do. Thanks to Meowy (followed his tutorial word for word), I created a masterpiece. Six hours in the smoker, seven in the oven. It was amazing!  Here are a few pics:

    Got the smoker set up on the snow covered back porch. This is Georgia, we don't ever have snow on the ground this long!

    Pulling the Butts. I really liked the color of the bark

    Today, I decided to do a Breakfast Fatty. We scrambled some eggs, cooked some hashbrowns, and threw in some cheese. Smoked it for three hours and gave it to the wife and in-laws for supper. Needless to say, it got rave reviews!
