Just a bit of an intro,sorry in advance if this ends up long.I am under taking a project which is what prompted me to join here. I've read here for a couple years on and off, I've had a brinkman home depot offset smoker that I gave away when I moved from Florida to Georgia last year. most recently I've been cooking in a small Brinkman cabinet and my neighbors offset. Well now his firebox rotted off and the bottom rotted out of my cabinet. With modest cookers I'm happy with the que I've put out.
