I've been lurking here for a few weeks, studying and learning because I bought a cheap propane smoker after wanting to get into smoking for a few years. I didn't really know how much I would enjoy it or how good I would be at it, so I didn't want to invest too !much at first. After following the guidance I've been reading here, I successfully smoked my first two racks of ribs last weekend, which were called "the best I've ever had" by my neighbors, myself and my son who is currently in culinary school. I was as proud as a peacock. So on Memorial Day, I smoked 2 pork loins for the family and neighbors which were recipes that I found here. I got the same reaction as the ribs. So now I'm officially addicted and I'm not only doing two chickens this weekend, I am smoking salmon for my wife and even trying my first fatty, which is in the smoker right now. So I wanted to sign up to say thanks, learn some more, and possibly pass on things I'm learning to others.
