I'm new to the site and was asked to muster so her goes, I'm a retired Navy Chief living in Northern VA, with my name meaning exactly what it says O 2 B N TX. I've been eating competition grade brisket and ribs from my wife's family for 20+ years and decided to start trying to do it myself. I recently purchased a Char-Griller Pellet Smoker. I love the ease, but have yet to master anything that I would share. So far the best I've done is with Chicken and Turkey but ribs, pork butt and brisket...its all crap. Hoping I find some like minded smokers out there that could help this misplaced Texan smoke something other than fowl!!!
