Hey all. I purchased a Rival Smoker from Wal Mart about 1 week ago and have smoked twice. I know its not the best but the $30.00 price tag was to good to pass up. I will eventually get a different smoker but it is serving me just fine now. It has put out some good pulled pork and spare ribs using the 3-2-1 method. Before that I have never smoked before and this site is excellent for a newbie to learn on. I am an associate regional meat buyer for Whole Foods Market so I know my meat. If anyone ever needs any information about that I am always willing to help and share my knowledge.
