Hi Folks! What a great site! Fantastic tips, info, and lots of passion! I just moved into a new place and am excited to get started smokin'. Yesterday, I just got a new Char-Broil American Gourmet. I know it's basically the cheapest offset smoker ever, but it's a huge step for a guy who has been using mostly homemade rigs of clay pots and (gasp!) the oven. It's basically the first smoker I've ever bought. (I had to debate between that and a ECB.) So along with the new rig, I went and picked up some pork belly which are in two different cures for bacon, some pork loin for canadian bacon, some sausage chubs for fatties, and some ribs of course. I can't wait! I've never heard of fatties of ABT's till this site so I'm pretty excited to try them.
