New Smoker in the House

  1. Howdy Yall;

    I just bought my first smoker for July 4th to try an old family recipe for leg quaters. I've used the recipe for years with indirect heat on a charcoal grill, and thats after eating for years of my dads gass grill. I bought a Brinkmann 40" SNP (I've been studying acronyms). I happened across the forums looking for mods to help regulat cooking temps and have spent hours pooring over the ideas, recipies, and suggestions of veteran smokers. I'm already buuging the wife to invite some frineds up this weekend so I have an excuse to try a couple of fatties and maybee a pork butt.

    Smoker Status: newbish (i've been using inderect heat and wood chunks/chips for chiken and ribs for years in a ROTM charcoal grill)

    Glad to hear from you! Researching something you like is almost as much fun as using something you like...almost.
  3. Yeah, my job is a hurry up and wait kinda thing (Networked Systems Engineer, aka computer geek), so I find some days I spend 1 hour working, and 7 hours scouring the net for interesting reading, and SMF is full of good info...
