    Hey fellas!  Been lurking around here for a week or so and I'm amazed at the amount of info in here from everyone!  

    I've dabbled in smoking for a few years but started to get a strong interest in it last year.  At that time, I signed my son & I up to be BBQ judges at the Kansas City American Royal, and the interest really got strong from there.  It was a blast to be involved with the judging...good, good eats to be had there!  Being Kansas City native, I'll be a regular at the event! 

    For my birthday in May of this year, my 3 boys pitched in with their Grandma and bought me an upright propane smoke made by Master Forge.  It's a pretty good unit right out of the box and I've put a lot of meat through it with nothing being bad.  Since I was getting totally hooked into smoking, I was getting an itch for something bigger.  Well next door to me is a little old widowed lady who's 26 year old grandson lives with her.  Well I was out on my deck and we got to talking about cutting grass (she's about 70 and her P.O.S. grandson doesn't help her) and so on when she says she has a smoker on her deck that hadn't been used in 5 years since her husband died.  I asked her if she didn't use it, would she consider selling it to me.  She stated she didn't have a clue what it was worth.  Well, all said and done...she asked if I would weedeat her place until she bought another weedeater and she would just give it to me instead of watching it rust to death.  So now I'm the owner of a Brinkman Smoke N Pit Professional!  I brought her one of the first Pork Butts I smoked in it and she said it was fabulous!  

    Pics of the 2 smokers below...one with a "treat"!  lol

    Yep...just north of KC in Platte City.  

    Thanks for the welcome fellas!  BTW...that meat on smoker is called a "Pork Ham Outside".  I work for a freezer/cooler/dry storage facility and we had a few extra cases left over.  They are from Berkshire - SixPoint.  Not exactly sure what the heck is a pork ham outside but after taking a look at them at work I thought...those can be smoked!  They are about 4-5lbs each and have been smoking at an average temp of 220 for about 7 hours now with an internal temp as of right now at 179 and trying to get to 190.
