Hey all, my name is Charlie, I'm 24 from Long Island and I am brand spanking new to smoking. I bought my first smoker 3 weeks ago and I've been itching to get smoking! My unit is a brinkmann smoke and grill (aka ECB) which I modified according to at least 15 YouTube videos I've watched. My goal is to do my first pork butt on Memorial Day. Aside from my new interest in smoking, I love to cook, play music and root on my favorite New York sports teams. I can't wait to start learning and sharing my progress with you all. See you around the forums!!!
