What a great site. Tons of great advice. All I can say is thanks. I got an electric Brinkman last year for Fathers day and got seriously hooked on smoking pork butts and brisket. This year I moved up to a propane vertical from Perfect Flame (Lowes knock-off). Still trying to get the feel for it. I've been looking through the forums and can't wait to try some of the recipes. I'll be back with updates as I try them out.
