Hello! Man do I have a lot to learn. I am a ROOKIE. I have cooked ribs a coulpe of times on my charcoal Char Griller, Santa added a propane Masterbuilt smoker to our deck. First time out with it was not impressive. I'm sure this forum will help me out. Looking forward to the 5 day ecourse! I love to duck and deer hunt and spend time with family on the lake at our camphouse in Hatchie bottom.
