Hey guys! I've been a lurker on this site for over a year soaking up information. I have LOVED BBQ all my life, and finally got my first smoker at the end of last summer. Its a Camp Chef Smoke Vault 24. I got the hang of using it last year and it has produced some awesome Q so far. I haven't pulled it out yet this year...mostly because the weather in Cleveland has SUCKED lately. I've been doing a few modifications to the vault and should be ready to fire it up in the next week or so. Mods include adding a rubber grommet for probes and a needle valve setup. Can't wait to get some food off of this sucker this year. Last year I tried to cook as much as I could. I did several successful whole chickens, a full packer brisket, 2 pulled porks and a bunch of racks of St. Louis cut ribs. Thanks to this site and amazingribs, I look almost like a seasoned pro pitmaster to my friends / family. Looking forward to LOTS of smoking this year!
