Rack_Hunter here from SE Kansas. I live in the country, but I am closest to Pittsburg, KS and Joplin, MO. Currently, all I have is a gas and a charcoal grill that I have successfully cooked country style ribs on several times. A friend and member (Radio) told me about this site and how much I could learn here. I have borrowed a smoker in the past and done some whole hogs, but never ribs, brisket, etc. Thanks for reading this and God Bless.
