I did the e-course awhile back, and have been reading Jeff's monthly emails. They're good stuff. Hadnt really checked the boards out, but wow is there a lot of stuff out here. Just start smoking meat about a year ago, and really enjoy it. The first couple racks of ribs and shoulders I did werent the best, bet now I have to admit, they are pretty darn good. Its really interesting to read the SMF because everybody has opinions on how to cook stuff. It gives me some cool ideas. And Fatty's? I had never in my life heard of a fatty which is pretty amazing considering sausage and bacon are maybe my two favorite foods. I'll definitly be giving those a shot soon. I do have one questions about tools. I was watching this chili and BBQ contest from Vegas the other night on the food channel, and this lady had a tool she used to pull her pork. It looked like a claw she put on each hand with those was able to easlily tear apart the shoulder she had just cooked. Anybody know where I could pick a set of these up? Thanks again for the help and all the awesome knowledge. Jeff p.s. I will post pics (qview) of my next meal. I'm using the chargriller with the offset box now.
