Hello all! I've spent the last 2 years perfecting my steak cooking skills and finally have it down to a science, so I need a new challenge and boy does it appears I have found one. Bought my smoker a couple days ago and am excited to season it tomorrow and start smoking. I just dipped my toe in the water and picked up a Oklahoma Joe Highland at Lowes, after the sale price and military discount I got into it for around $250. I read a little about them and they appeard to be right up my alley. I need to get some Nomex tape and RTV and I should be good to go. Picking up some charcoal, hickory and ribs tonight and am going to dive in and see how it goes. Look forward to learning and of course eating massive amounts of BBQ!
