I've been following the forums for a year or so now and all of the posts have been very helpful! The many ideas here have helped me develop methods for my smoker that give me great results every time and I hope to begin contributing, too. I look forward to sharing ideas and thoughts. I've currently got an old Brinkmann gas/charcoal/smoker combo from Home Depot that is still chugging. Want to upgrade to something nicer soon, though.
