A friend directed me here after he smoked a "Big Fatty" and I ate most of it! I have been smoking for several years. Mostly ribs, turkeys and pork roasts. I am always looking for new recipes and techniques so this site looks really cool. I live near Rochester NY so in the winter I smoke in the garage while I run a heater to keep it up to temp. I have a bullet shaped brinkman that i converted from charcoal to electric. I can hear you all moaning about converting but I have two small children so the covenience is good. I can always go back if I want.
