My name is Jimmy. I live in Niles, MI. I've smoked twice. First was pork chops plain ol smoke no frills. Next I smoked a ham. No brine, just a applesauce and brown sugar glaze. With tips from this site. Soaked some applewood ships and then placed that water in the water pan of a Masterbuilt 40" elctronic/electric smoker. On loan from my uncle.I have four wonderfull children(7-G,5-B,3-G,1-G) and a beutifull wife to feed. lol. Now I'm hooked and want to buy one. Altough, MJy uncle said I could borrow his anytime. So, we'll see. Thats all for now. I love this site and will be recomending to fellow smokers. Chat at ya'll later.
