Hey! I have been lurking for a short time now and have read a ton, got the 5 day email course, and look forward to doing some smoking. I have never smoked anything in my life, and while I am awaiting the arrival of my new large GSSM I received a free horizontal charcoal smoker from a friend. I played with it all day yesterday, sealed it up with black rtv, and I think I have it down to where I can maintain 220-250 pretty good. I am going to do a beer butt chicken (done a ton on the grill but never smoked one) using mesquite chunks. I will provide a Q view when I get going as I know how important that is. Just wanted to say thanks for a ton of awesome info and a great site!!!
