I found this site from looking at a hunting pa site. I have done some smoking before but very little. I would like to get into it a bit more. my first smoker was is a brinkman grill and smoke. it must have been an old one though because there is no door on the front. did a few chunks of deer and beef in it. I wanted something that was a bit more easier to put more charcoal in so I went and bought a new brinkman grill and smoke with the door. got to looking around and seen there are some mods that need done to make it more efficient. being a machinist it makes it easy to do mods like this. I plan on doing a load of ABT's this sunday as a test run. they sound mighty tasty. lookin forward to learning from some of the pros here. thanks for havin me.
