Hi everyone I'm Mims and I just unexpectedly bought my brothers Brinkman last weekend. I've been reading all the post and Jim's info for a while because @64 yrs young I wanted to start a new hobby..smoking yummies! Thanks for all the info I've gotten from posts.Jumped right in with my first brisket today and some chicken legs for a quicker treat for my sons to test Its been fun hanging with the smoker today..all seems well so far and i'll update later. Looking forward to the community as i have time! Do have a question..seems flies have come buzzing around the area today any ideas?
