    Hi, I'm Ben.
    I'm from Mid-Michigan and have been smoking for almost a year. I got a Brinkmann Gourmet for my 15th birthday, and recently got a firebox to go on my dad's Char-Griller grill that i haven't used yet. Other than BBQ, I play drums and tennis, and dabble in disc golf Civil War reenacting.
  2. Hello and Welcome to our addiction.  Many good folks here with a load of experience that they are more than willing to share.  If you have specific questions just start a thread and someone with experience will be along soon to offer advice.  All info you can provide us with such as smoker type, location and so on will help us answer any questions you may have, and pictures help a bunch.  Spend some time doing some research on the forums, tons of advice and recipes already available there.  Check out Jeff’s 5 day smoking E-Course ( link below ) that will help you get started.  We look forward to your contributions.  Have fun.  Good luck.  Keep Smokin!
