So far i have smoked a few hams, and a full brisket. I am smoking a full pork loin tomorrow for dinner with the in-laws. My brother in-law and i have a friendly competition going with our smoking talents. So far i am up on him for doing the brisket, he has only smoked hams. I am always looking for some pointers and advice from seasoned smokers. Right now i am using a char griller duo grill with the add on side fire box. I am looking to do away with gas and get a full offset smoker. The oklahoma joe highland is on my research list.
