Man did this make me a happy Guy! My name is Jay, I love to BBQ up here in cold *** Erie, PA. Neighbors think I am very strange for grilling in the snow but I don't stop grilling for bad weather. Now they think I am completely nuts using a smoker in the snow! I got tired of the same old grilling. So I went up to Lowes and got a smoker for Superbowl and bought a brisket. Did some Google Searches and did it up. I had no idea what I was doing, that was not too long ago... The brisket didn't turn out too bad but I know it could have been MUCH better. So I still have no idea what I'm doing!!! This is why I am here, I guess. Anyways I am very happy I found this site and I can only see my smoking techniques get way better!
