Hi all, I'm Cathy from SW Missouri. I love to cook for my family and my husband adores pulled pork so I now have an Oklahoma Joe's Longhorn smoker. I didn't want to spend a LOT of money but wanted a capable smoker and the reviews here helped me make my choice. I got the smoker setup this afternoon and am planning on smoking a pork loin tomorrow for fellowship dinner at church. How is that for over-confidence - LOL!!! I have "faked" many smoked pork loins in the oven so that can be my backup plan. I have read about sand in the fire box, bricks lining the bottom of the smoker, all kinds of accessories, etc. Where do I go to start? I DID add another thermometer to the other port in the smoker. Thanks for all the help.
