But new to the forum. I have been reading it for a week now and thought I would jump in, seems like a nice group here. I currently have no smoker since my Brinkman burned out the second element, I just threw it away. I will be getting a Master Built from Sam's for home and may be opening a smoking bussiness in Utah in the future. Looking forward to learning more from the folks here. I had a Rib Joint in Wisconsin years ago and was honored to be chosen by Bon' Appetit magazine to publish my recipe, then in their hard covered book. I didn't smoke in those days, just slow cooked them. There is a very funny story here. Maybe later.
