I've been on this site for awhile, but for some reason have not posted. I figured tonight was a good night to start. I have gotten great advise here! I am new to smoking. I have a Smokey Mountain propane smoker that a co-worker recommended. It is working great but I would love to build my own 55 gallon drum smoker someday. I live in Kansas and work full time as an EMT and do photography on the side for fun money. Plan on smoking a lot more this summer. Hope to get some pics added soon. Thanks for all the help so far.
