Hello new to thread as of today Im fairly new to the smoking world as I been doing it for a year or so. I built a custom direct heat smoker out of center blocks just to see what smoking was all about and recently have purchased a Old Country Pacos smoker and I really like it. Done in total about 13 racks of ribs 3 pork butts 2 chickens and a brisket and havent had any problems. Im a wood mixer as I like to us some fruit woods with my oaks and pecans. Just looking for advice from others smokers as I really love it and have a passion for it. Would love any info from anyone out there.
