I joined last year but never got around to my intro post. I'm a recent transplant to Texas from the UK and so I've lead a life deprived of smoked meats for the first 40 years of life. I'm kw attempting to make up for that as fast possible. Smoking my first pork shoulder as I type this; struggling to keep the temp down :/ So far I've smoked a few racks of ribs and a brisket so far. First ribs were very bitter as I thought more smoke equalled more flavor. I was happy with my first brisket although it probably needed another hour and a different wood. But it's all fun and good eating!
