Hi, my name is Bob and I have been lurking around for a couple of weeks. I lived in Massachusetts, North and West of Boston, just a bit. I grew up on the West side of Cincinnati. I own a Brinkman bullet smoker that I have used a few times, but mostly I use one burner of my propane grill that seems to work pretty well. I have recently smoked some chicken breast that came out so tender and moist that they were better than anything I have eaten in years. They were served up as pulled chicken sandwiches and they didn't last long. Yesterday was a couple of ribeyes that came out very close to perfect. Just slightly overdone due to not having a proper thermometer. (I have the Maverick ET-7 on the way for next weekend!) I have already learned a lot from the forum and I am sure I will learn more! I was just reading about some of the chili recipes, and some are quite different from what I am used to and I look forward to trying them. Bring on the Pork Butt for this coming weekend though! I am going to make the modifications to my Brinkman as mentioned in the forum as well (lift off over coals, vents, etc) I applaud those of you who have shared your experiences and recipes.
