Hello there SMF members. I am new to smoking and am scheduled to receive my Brinkman TMSE in a couple days. I live in Omaha, Nebraska and have been researching (mostly from SMF) my latest purchase. I'm a little overwhelmed by everything that goes into being a seasoned smoker. Just seeing the mods that I need to do to my new smoker makes me a little worried. I have never smoked anything. However, I am glad to see that there is such a large support group when it comes to smoking. Looking forward to the new hobby and hopefully smoking up some good meals. Needless to say wish I was assembling my new toy right now.
