I'm new here. I just got a brinkman smoker grill... the one with the firebox on the side. I got this on father's day, and I've done four smokes on this thing. Chickens, a pork shoulder, some ribs, and a beef roast. I'm not quite happy with my results. I'm afraid I'm over-smoking the meat, but I really love doing this and my wife and I have fun getting everything ready... anyway... we really want to get this figured out. So any help would be... well helpful... lol. You can call me a dumbass... just smile when you say it.
